Patriots' victory parade pushed to Wednesday due to bad weather
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Boston is postponing its victory parade for the Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots because of heavy snowfall.
Mayor Marty Walsh said late Monday that the city will delay the celebration until Wednesday morning. The city had announced earlier that the downtown parade would take place Tuesday.
Walsh said in a statement that the city and team have agreed to hold off because of Monday's snowstorm. It dumped more than a foot of fresh snow on the Boston area made commutes treacherous.
Boston has already canceled school Tuesday. It was the fifth snow day in the past week as the city has seen a record 34 inches of snow in seven days.
The Patriots are on their way back to Massachusetts on Monday following their 28-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday in Arizona.
