Major league teams aren’t the only ones who deserve championship parades, are we right? The city of Boston has arranged a celebration to honor the Pop Warner Dorchester Elite Eagles and the Boston Raiders Cheerleaders, who both secured national championship titles this month in Orlando.

The Eagles won a Division 1 national championship in this year’s Pop Warner Super Bowl tournament, prevailing against Pennsylvania’s Darby Monarchs in a 20-0 game. The victory makes the Eagles the first Boston team to win a Pop Warner national championship in any age or weight category. The Raiders took home the Bantam Division Cheer National Championship this year, as well.

A parade for the two teams will take place this Saturday, Dec. 16 at 2 p.m. in Boston. The festivities will begin at TechBoston Academy (9 Peacevale Rd.), pivot to Norfolk Street, and wrap at the Berkshire Partners Blue Hill Boys and Girls Club (15 Talbot Ave.).
