The City of Boston will celebrate the Boston Celtics NBA Finals victory over the Dallas Mavericks with another Boston Duck Boat Parade Friday. It’ll be the first time the duck boats have been called to duty since the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl in 2019.

Boston Duck Boat Parade Route

By now you should be used to this. This ain’t our first rodeo. But just in case you’re new to the duck boat parade, this year’s parade will begin at TD Garden at 11AM. The duck boats will head to City Hall Plaza before reaching Boston Common on Tremont Street. The parade ends on Boylston Street near the Hynes Convention Center.

Why the wait until Friday?

The heat in Boston over the next 3 days will be intense. Forecasters are calling for temperatures to hover around the mid 90s today, tomorrow and Thursday. By Friday, temps should cool off a bit. The high forecasted for the parade Friday is below 80.

The history of the Boston Duck Boat Parade

Boston Duck Tours have brought the boats to the Garden now a dozen times. The first Boston duck boat parade was for the New England Patriots when a young Tom Brady helped the Pats win their first Super Bowl. Since then Bruins, Red Sox, Celtics and Patriots fans have lined the streets of Boston to watch their champs ride by on the former army vehicles.

Take a look back at some of these memorable moments from duck boat parades of years gone by.
