Boston-based Patriots fans took to the streets to celebrate Sunday's Super Bowl victory. About 8,000 people gathered on Landsdowne Street near Fenway Park to celebrate the 3-13 win over Los Angeles Rams, officials said.
Thousands of students went to Boston to celebrate the victory. There was a strong police presence. After about 45 minutes, the crowd dispersed slowly. The Boston crowd was the biggest party after the World Series.
For the most part, the fans acted. Boston police reported the arrest of a minor crime.
In recent years, the celebrations of the city were relatively sober and respectable.
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and Police Commissioner William Gross met on Friday to ask supporters to act responsibly after the match.
"Be smart about what happens at the end of the match, win or lose, it does not matter, it's still a game."
