Philadelphia is cleaning up the streets one day after hundreds of thousands celebrated the Eagles' Super Bowl victory with a parade.

As many as two million people are expected to jam the parade route.

According to Tuesday's press conference, the 5-mile parade will kick off at 10:45 am outside of Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia and will conclude with a ceremony at 1 pm at the Philadelphia Art Museum.
