Fans of the New England Patriots likely are still celebrating after their team’s improbably comeback to beat the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday’s Super Bowl and the organization wants them to keep right on celebrating.

Boston Mayor Martin Walsh has said the Patriots will be parading through downtown Boston on Tuesday, starting at the Prudential Tower at 11 am and ending at city hall, according to a report from the Boston Herald.

The parade of 25 floats, carrying the players and their families, likely will have to compete with Winter Storm Linus, which is expected to drop heavy snowfall on New England on Monday evening. Mayor Walsh said the parade will still go on.

“We'll probably have ploughs behind them, in front of them and beside them,“ Mr Walsh said at a press conference, before explaining the urgency of the parade. “A lot of the players are leaving New England and going on vacation.”

The Patriots came back from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl to beat the Seahawks 28-24 in one of the more entertaining Super Bowls in recent memory.
