We're about an hour into the 2011 Boston Bruins parade, as they celebrate their Stanley Cup championship with an estimated one million fans in the streets of Boston. As of this post, the duck boat parade is about halfway through the route, just past City Hall Plaza in downtown Boston.
While the crowds are still huge along the latter half of the route, from City Hall to Boston Common to Copley Square, back along Causeway Street near TD Garden where things started around 11 a.m., things are much different.
Empty. There were thousands of people there just about a half hour before this picture was taken. Pretty incredible.
