Moments ago the Phillies became the 2008 World Series Champions. Together, the team and the City will celebrate this victory on Friday, October 31, by hosting a parade that will originate at noon at 20th and Market Streets and travel south down Broad Street ending at the sports complex. Fans attending the parade are encouraged to take public transportation due to the expected large crowds and limited parking.
"Phillies fans have been waiting 28 years for this day," said Mayor Nutter. "We deserve this win. I can't wait to share this day with Phillies fans from across the City, state, and even country."
