Snow puts off parade

-

BOSTON will delay until tomorrow its parade to celebrate the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl victory, after Mayor Marty Walsh decided to push the event back because of a snowstorm pounding the city.

Boston had intended to host the parade today. But heavy snowfall is expected and temperatur­es are expected to drop as low as -9 C.

Thousands of fans are expected to turn out as the team tours the city in World War II-era amphibious trucks known as ‘‘duck boats’’ in what has become a tradition for Boston’s championsh­ip clubs.

Fans are calling Monday one of the best Super Bowls ever, as the Patriots clinched their fourth title.
