The city is preparing for the parade of a lifetime as millions of people could be on hand to celebrate the city’s first Super Bowl. In addition to folks who live here, many of our friends that were born and raised in the city are flying or driving back to the area to celebrate with us.
Are you a displaced Eagles fan? Tell us how far you’ll be coming to see this once-in-a-lifetime moment. Here are some of the lengths people are going to so they can be in Philadelphia on Thursday.

Three hours after the game, my friend (also an Eagles fan) and I drove from the University of Missouri six hours through the night to meet his dad in Chicago. After a quick power nap, we drove 12 hours straight to reach Oreland at 2:30 am Tuesday. Wouldn’t miss this for anything!— Brendan Lavell (@brendan_lavell) February 7, 2018

I left Milwaukee, WI about 15 mins after the ceremony presentation was over and drove home. Drove 6 hrs straight thru to Cleveland, slept for 4 hours, got up and drove the rest of the way. Not going to miss this for the world! @Eagles pic.twitter.com/F2Hv778vuf— Joe Hipp (@phightinphils) February 7, 2018
