PHOTOS: The Patriots Celebrate Their 6th Super Bowl WinPlay
The Patriots boarded the duck boats again on Tuesday — a balmy day in Boston — to celebrate Sunday's winning of their sixth Super Bowl trophy.
Hundreds of thousands of joyous, raucous fans packed Boylston Street, along the rolling rally route.
About nine rows back stood Hugo Ibarra, from Cambridge, who explained why he came: "To see the atmosphere here," he said in Spanish. "To see what the Patriots celebration is like."
Standing behind him, with a roommate from the Back Bay, was Annie Kim.
"We weren't able to go to the Sox parade, so when the Pats win, you have to take the day off, and you take time to go," Kim said.
Police asked spectators not to throw beer at the players, but not everyone got the message. Some threw beers to players, who drank them.
Some fans came a long way. Like Kim Hernandez, who said she "flew in from Orlando this morning to go to the Patriots parade. I've been a lifelong Patriots fan."
Commuter trains were packed to capacity on the way in, some skipping stops they were so full. On the way to the parade on a South Shore train, Hernandez met Debbie Stewart and her friends.
"This is on my bucket list," Stewart said. "I've been dying to come to this. I called my sister and we got the thing going, and I'm so happy to be here today."
