Philadelphia finally gets to officially celebrate the Eagles first ever Super Bowl win, and celebrities and Eagles players are just as amped as we are.
As we found out this season, though, the Birds have plenty of high-profile fans, from hometown folks like Bradley Cooper, Pink, and Will Smith, to non-natives like Stephen King and John Cena. It’s anyone’s guess who will show up today, but a first-time Super Bowl win comes once in a lifetime, so anything is possible.
Follow along with us here for all the celebrity action along the Eagles parade route.
In the pre-parade hours, Eagles players are showing up in their parade day best:

The Sixers’ Joel Embiid, meanwhile, kept things casual:

As did former Phillie Ryan Howard:
Several former Eagles players are also in town, and some can’t seem to believe their eyes:

Philly celebs have also made the long trek back home to celebrate the Eagles first ever Super Bowl win:
I’ve been in Philadelphia for 10 minutes and I’ve already freed Meek
Famed Philadelphian DJ Jazzy Jeff couldn’t make it (he’s in Poland), but he did get a few words in on ESPN:
Can’t be there because I’m in Poland but had a chance to share my joy for my @Eagles on @espn!!! Congratulations to The Philadelphia Eagles…You are The Superbowl Champion!!#GoEagles #SuperBowlChamps pic.twitter.com/Z736myLr6h
You know it’s a true Philadelphia championship celebration when they’re even interviewing DJ Jazzy Jeff on ESPN! #FlyEaglesFly
Kobe Bryant offered his congrats from afar as well:
As the parade begins, some Eagles and Eagles alumni are clearly feeling the day’s celebration:
This is amazing
PSA: please toss us beers as we drive by

Y’all ready ?! #FlyEaglesFly
God bless us all! #FlyEaglesFly
So far, Jason Kelce is having the most fun:

Jason Kelce literally just signed his own open container ticket at the Eagles Parade.. LEGENDARY
But no one catches a beer like Doug Pederson:
Lots of folks hoping for Meek Mill’s freedom today:
Everyday is a perfect day to Free Meek Mill https://t.co/VmsHwUa9wu
philly: free parking, free beer, free meek mill
Today’s chants… so far
B-Coop, where are you? Fans need to know:
I don’t understand why Bradley Cooper isn’t here. He IS the #eagles
If Bradley Cooper is not on one of these open air buses for the championship parade, so help me God.
And what of Rocky himself, Sylvester Stallone? Birds fans are wondering where the Italian Stallion is:
What’s the possibility that Swoop could unmask and be Sylvester stallone… as the speeches begin?
On his own social media, Sly congratulated the Birds on their Super Bowl win, telling the team he is “so proud” of them. He also indicated to the Birds that he would “see you soon.”
A post shared by Sly Stallone (@officialslystallone) on Feb 8, 2018 at 10:10am PST
Sly didn’t show up, and at least one fan was very disappointed:
@TheSlyStallone you missed out on would have been the greatest moment in Philadelphia sports by declining the eagles offer to run up the steps during the parade!! Why?’ Why decline it?!! You are filming creed 2 now in the city. We stayed to see you. Ass!!
You declined the offer to run up the steps from the city! Creed 2 will suck. Your karma is bad now. You ruined what would be the greatest!!!! F off. Go get another face lift cause you’re falling apart.
The parade reached the Art Museum just after 2 p.m. for its official ceremony. Jeff Laurie kicked things off with a mic drop:

The Birds, meanwhile, spoke their minds:
Jason Peters:”I want to thank each and every one of these guys for going out there and fighting for me. …A bunch of guys went down, and these guys never batted an eye. You never stopped rooting for them. We always believed in each other. And that’s why we’re Super Bowl champs.”
Nick Foles: “I don’t think words can really describe what’s going on today. I’ve never seen so many people in unity celebrating one thing.”
Doug Pederson: “We brought you guys a world championship, and just like Mr. Lurie said, we’re not done yet. …This is our new norm!”
Brent Celek: “Philly, I love you! Philly, when I was drafted here in 2007, there was one thing all the fans said they wanted. And that was a world championship. And today, we celebrate the fact that Philly has a world championship!”
And Jason Kelce is still having the most fun:

JASON KELCE IAM ABOUT TO RUN THROUGH A WALL
Jason Kelce is cutting an amazing promo on Mike Lombardi while dressed like a combination of Macho Man Randy Savage and The Grand Wizard (my 70s wrestling fans know who that is) #Eagles
No one epic rants like Jason Kelce https://t.co/FrSboljLc6
Yo kelce is amazing!! Epitomizes Philly!! #worldchamps
Jason Kelce, dressed as a mummer, with a memorable parade speech. Defends Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson. Talks about all the criticism the Eagles endured. Goes through players throughout the roster, criticizes analysts in the media. “We’re a bunch of underdogs!”
Seriously @JasonKelce is a Philly legend now and should never pay for a drink or meal ever again in this town.
jason kelce’s great-great grandkids will never pay for a beverage in this town
I have never seen a professional sports parade dominated like Jason Kelce of the #Eagles is dominating here. No offense Chase Utley, but “world f–king champions” of 2008 has been dethroned. #Philly #EaglesParade pic.twitter.com/2QYVohdKvI
Following the celebration, Eagles players thanked the city for their support:
Philly today was special! Thank you for your support! Shoutouts to the bus drivers, police, and security. That wasn’t the easiest job in the world but we felt safe with you. One time for Jason Kelce too!

And the Greatest Championship parade speech ever given goes to: Jason Kelce of the Philadelphia Eagles??????
