PEACOCK PRIDE: Parade, pep rally held in Jersey City to honor St. Peter’s men’s basketball team
A parade and pep rally was held in Jersey City on Friday to honor the St. Peter’s men’s basketball team and their accomplishments in the NCAA college basketball tournament.
The St. Peter’s Peacocks became the first No. 15 seed team to make it to the Elite Eight.
The Cinderella run became a source of inspiration for much of New Jersey during March Madness.
Thousands of people came out to view the parade.
It ended with speeches from several New jersey dignitaries and members of the team were given the key to the city.
