Despite 40 inches of snow, congested roads and freezing temperatures, thousands of New England Patriots fans came out Wednesday to celebrate their team's Super Bowl Victory last Sunday.

A procession of duck boats snaked from the Prudential Center, down Boylston Street to City Hall Plaza. They carried the players, including Tom Brady waving with his son in his lap; Coach Bill Belichick who hoisted the Lombardi trophy over his head; and Julian Edelman, who celebrated with a dance.

However, there was some controversy about whether or not the parade should have taken place, given the snow cleanup the city still needs and the incoming storms.
