Where do I get my free Bud Light (and Yards) beer?
Keeping good on their promise to fuel the city with free beer, Bud Light reps will be at multiple bars along the parade route handing out free beer to anyone over 21-years-old. If Bud's not your preferred brew, you're in luck: not to be outdone, the fine folks at Yards Brewing Company are also pouring free Philly Pale Ale pints at their new taproom on Spring Garden. Leave your backpacks of beer at home -- they will be confiscated.
What'll the weather be like?
Thursday’s weather is set for a high of 34 degrees and sunny -- in other words, layer up in every item of Eagles gear you own and bring some sunglasses as well.
Should I drive or take a train into Philly?
It’s definitely best if you don’t drive. SEPTA is offering free rides to select stops on the Broad Street and Market-Frankford lines, but be prepared to wait in line, as all other train stations are closed the entire day. Service will run every five to seven minutes. Based on crowd size, stations are subject to close (hooray!). Regional rail schedules will be impacted as well, with only inbound trains running in the morning and outbound ones in the afternoon. PATCO will run on a modified schedule, too: starting at 6am, only westbound trains heading into the city leaving from select stations will be offered. At 1:20pm, only eastbound trains will depart from select stations.
What roads are closed?
Get ready for lots of shut down streets surrounding the parade route and the art museum for basically the whole day on Thursday. Starting at 5am, major roads around the Philadelphia Museum of Art will be closed, South Broad Street shuts down at 9am Most roads should reopen by 6pm. Basically, lots of the city will be on lockdown. A full list of road closures and temporary parking regulations can be found here.
