For those asking, no, the stadium area will NOT be open for parking tomorrow morning, nor will FDR Park.
If you’re driving in for the parade, you’ll have to find somewhere else to stash your car.
But if you do park in town, the PPA will not enforce meter and time restrictions. If you do something dumb, though, like park in front of a fire hydrant, you WILL get a ticket for that. And vehicles won’t be released on Thursday, so you’ll have to wait until Friday to get your ride back.
Why are the stadiums closed? I don’t know, but this is the official word from the city:
“Due to security and public safety concerns, parking will not be available at Lincoln Financial Field or the stadium complex.”
It would probably a logistical nightmare trying to get everyone into the lots via one entrance (95 and Broad) while everything thing else is shut down around the start of the parade route.
The Flyers DO play tomorrow night, so that’s one thing to consider. Here’s some relevant info on that:
For fans traveling to tomorrow's game: The South Philadelphia Sports Complex parking lots will open at 4:30pm. The City anticipates that the Broad Street Exits on I-95 and I-76 will re-open by 4pm. We will follow up with any further updates.

Because of the parade, Montreal has switched hotels (from Center City to the airport) and canceled its morning skate for Thurs. The #Flyers will move their morning skate to Voorhees at 10:30 Thurs.

My suggestion is to come into the city tonight, stay with a friend or family if you know someone down here, and then walk or take the Broad Street or Market/Frankford line in.
If that’s not an option, then may God be with you.
