It will easily be the biggest celebration since the Phillies' 2008 World Series parade as up to 3 million people are expected to attend Thursday's parade.

The parade will start at 11 a.m. at Broad Street and Pattison Avenue in South Philadelphia. The bash will head up Broad Street, twist around City Hall, and wrap up at the Art Museum.

Further details will be announced during a news conference at 9 a.m. on Tuesday.

As crews outside City Hall fixed damage left behind from Sunday's partying, fans today were living in the moment.

"It's going to be insane," said Chris Frey.

At least three people were arrested as some celebrations turned rowdy.

Portable facilities were dropped off along the parade route, and while the city is quiet, the route is obvious, judging from where the metal gates have been dropped.

Philadelphia schools will be closed on Thursday, as well as the Art Museum.

The Eagles defeated the New England Patriots in dramatic fashion in Super Bowl LII, winning 41-33.

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was named Super Bowl MVP.
