PITTSBURGH (Feb. 6, 2006) -- The Steelers will celebrate their Super Bowl victory with a parade through downtown Pittsburgh on Tuesday.
The parade will begin at 11 a.m. at Mellon Arena, the home of the Pittsburgh Penguins. It will end at Point State Park, across the river from Heinz Field.
The Steelers beat the Seattle Seahawks 21-10 on Sunday for their fifth Super Bowl championship since the team was founded in 1933.
Mayor Bob O'Connor's office said that Steelers' players, coaches and owners will participate in the parade.
"Tomorrow's parade will be a great opportunity for this region to honor this amazing team and the (Dan) Rooney family for bringing the Vince Lombardi trophy back to the City of Champions," Allegheny county executive Dan Onorato said.
If the pep rallies of the last two weeks are any indication, thousands of Steelers fans are likely to attend. Two large pep rallies, including one at Heinz Field, were held leading up to the Super Bowl in Detroit.
