Having arrived home on Monday, the Seattle Seahawks are enjoying their victory as Super Bowl champions for the first time in their franchise history. The team and fans alike are gearing up for the Seahawks parade, which is due to take place at 11:00 am on Wednesday.
Coach Pete Carroll took to his Twitter account as soon as he arrived back in Seattle with the team: “It’s good to be back in the Great NW #12s!. Can’t wait to celebrate with you all on Wednesday! Super Bowl Champs!!” He tweeted.
The Seahawks parade, which is scheduled to set off at 11:00 a.m. and run through to around 1:30 p.m., will commence south of Seattle Center at Denny Way and will parade south down 4th Avenue, finishing at the north entrance of CenturyLink Field.
The Seahawks parade will include not only the players but also head coach Pete Carroll as well as other executives, Gov. Jay Inslee, and Mayor Ed Murray. Obviously the Mayor and Governor will be high off the ground due to security concerns.
Following the parade a Super Bowl celebration will be held at the CenturyLink Field which season ticket holders can attend following receipt of an email they received. Seats at the event are not due to be assigned as seating will be on a first come first served basis.
Superintendant Jose Banda from the Seattle Public Schools system noted that the Seahawks parade will not be an excuse for students to miss school: “While we support the team, academics must come first and it’s important not to lose a day in the classroom,” he said.
