Philadelphia Eagles parade brings excitement and crowds to city

Patients and families with appointments on Thursday should plan accordingly

The City of Philadelphia has announced their plans for a parade on Thursday, February 8, to celebrate our Philadelphia Eagles' Super Bowl victory!

The parade will begin in South Philadelphia at 11 a.m. and end at approximately 3 p.m. on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. If you have an appointment at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Philadelphia on Thursday, please plan accordingly. Though the hospital is not a part of the parade route, there will be increased traffic and higher volumes of pedestrians and those taking public transit.

If you are unable to keep your appointment and would like to reschedule, please call us at 215-430-4073.

As usual, the hospital does have free on-site parking available for all patients and families.
