Boston Bruins Parade 2011 Live: Party Ends At Copley Square After Two Hours Of Revelry

The Boston Bruins parade has come to a conclusion, and the players have gone their separate ways. It lasted about two hours, as the team boarded duck boats at TD Garden and wound their way through the streets of Boston, past Government Center, around Boston Common and down to Copley Square.

Before the boats started rolling, a few players and members of management spoke to a small group of fans outside the arena. Brad Marchand rapped, Zdeno Chara lifted the Cup again, and even handed it off to Cam Neely, the Bruins legend who never had an opportunity to win it as a player.

It was the largest crowd for a victory parade in the history of the City of Boston, and yes, that includes the 78 parades they've had in the last decade. Of course, part of that had to do that it's the middle of June, a gorgeous day and also a Saturday. By all accounts, the estimated one million people that turned out for the parade didn't cause any problems, and the only unfortunate incidents had to do with people who failed to properly hydrate.

It was a fantastic day for a parade in Boston, and it certainly seemed like a fantastic parade.
