All roads and rails lead to Philadelphia as fans pour into the city for the Eagles' Super Bowl parade.

A man who stole a seat from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis after the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl has agreed to pay for its replacement.

The parade came to an end at the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which was made famous by a cinematic champion of the city, Rocky Balboa, in the boxing franchise.

The parade caps a glorious week for jubilant fans celebrating an National Football League title that had eluded them for almost 60 years.

Before dawn in frigid wind chills in the low 20s, people have started lining the parade route Thursday to celebrate the team's first National Football League title in almost 60 years.

Operators of the Minneapolis stadium that hosted the Super Bowl have some seats to replace, including one taken by a Philadelphia Eagles fan who was spotted with a stolen seat at the airport.

Museums, city courts and even the Philadelphia Zoo will close as Philadelphia focuses on Thursday's celebrations.

Organizers said they're preparing for as many as 2 million people to jam the parade route. "In 2008, the Phillies won the World Series and in 2015 the Pope was here but the city has seen nothing like this".

The city's first Super Bowl parade steps off Thursday, capping a glorious week for jubilant fans celebrating an National Football League title that had eluded them for almost 60 years. PATCO suggested an alternative: Walking across the almost 2-mile-long (3-kilometer-long) Benjamin Franklin Bridge. "GO EAGLES!" he said.

Offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski posted a picture of his teammate Jason Kelce in what he called the "parade mood". "We are after all the city of brotherly love and sisterly affection".

"My mother was from the coal regions, she passed at 91 years old", the 66-year-old said.

"We might not be able to get everyone a beer but we can try", the brewer tweeted.
