Get ready, Boston: It's time to party like it's 2018.
It's only been about three months since the Red Sox paraded through the City of Champions to celebrate their 2018 World Series title. But the Duck Boats are back in action Tuesday, as the New England Patriots will roll down Boylston Street to celebrate their sixth Super Bowl title after beating the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 on Sunday.
The festivities begin at 11 a.m. ET, and with temperatures approaching the 60s, it should be raucous celebration that may cause a few Patriots players to lose their shirts (*cough* Julian Edelman *cough* Rob Gronkowski).
If you can't make it down there, we've got you covered. Below is a running live blog of the best parade sights and sounds, which we'll update throughout the day.
1:14 p.m.: Julian Edelman sums it up nicely.
1:12 p.m.: What a turnaround for former Cleveland Browns defensive back Jason McCourty.
1:02 p.m.: Never change, Gronk.
Gronk tried to keep it low-key... it didn't last. pic.twitter.com/TP4bokWfgt— Dov Kleiman (@NFL_DovKleiman) February 5, 2019
1 p.m.: This is awesome.

12:45 p.m.: Forget what you saw in Super Bowl LII ... Tom Brady can catch a football.
Best catch ever? pic.twitter.com/e1kTUAwbgU— Dave Portnoy (@stoolpresidente) February 5, 2019
12:37 p.m.: There are spoiled babies, and then there's this kid.
12:32 p.m.: Did we mention Gronk is back on brand?

12:22 p.m.: Rob Gronkowski is back on brand.
12:20 p.m.: Oh hey, Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman.
12:10 p.m.: It didn't take long for Robert Kraft to get these updated...
12:06 p.m.: It looks like the wine is getting to Gronk...
We’re an hour in and Gronk is wearing just a police vest. Very on schedule. pic.twitter.com/LCFPvfEMeP— Pete Blackburn (@PeteBlackburn) February 5, 2019
12:05 p.m.: Patriots backup QB Danny Etling from the top rope!

11:57 a.m.: We have an upset: David Andrews, not Gronk or Edelman, is the first Patriots player to lose his shirt.

11:53 a.m.: Shots fired! (That's linebacker Elandon Roberts holding the sign.)
11:52 a.m.: We have literal and figurative goats in the house.
11:51 a.m.: Has a nice ring to it.
11:50 a.m.: You've got to get creative when the squad keeps winning.
11:40 a.m.: And here's David Andrews with the Bud Light guy...
11:30 a.m.: Video evidence that Gronk is, in fact, drinking wine:
11:28 a.m.: Is he wrong?
11:20 a.m.: Rob Gronkowski is all grown up!
Gronk update: He’s currently slugging wine out of the bottle.— Zack Cox (@ZackCoxNESN) February 5, 2019
11:15 a.m.: Looks like Tom Brady brought a new toy back from Disney World.
11:10 a.m.: Robert Kraft is in the house with some fresh bling -- as are Jonathan Jones and the Patriots' defensive backs.

11 a.m. ET: Sign kid is back!
Also, Deatrich Wise knows what's up.
10:55 a.m. ET: What's a Boston sports parade without reminders of all those championships? Boston's sign game already is strong as the rally approaches.
Let’s hear it for Alex! The @Patriots fan attends the University of Oregon. He’d like to apologize to his professor, but he says there’s no way he’d miss this. @NBC10Boston @necn pic.twitter.com/qXJaYzIYFY— Abbey Niezgoda NBC10 Boston (@AbbeyNBCBoston) February 5, 2019
The streets look packed, by the way (and have been for a while).
It’s 8 am. The duck boats won’t be here until after 12. And they’re ready to go I’d say. pic.twitter.com/7HnOIBAI8T— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) February 5, 2019
I think Boston knows how to throw a party. pic.twitter.com/lRbbEKi1Dn— Michael Holley (@MichaelSHolley) February 5, 2019
