LOOK: Patriots fans pack Gillette Stadium for Super Bowl sendoff party

The New England Patriots are preparing to travel to Atlanta for Super Bowl LIII, but before they do they’re having a sendoff party at Gillette Stadium.

Fans have showed up en masse to celebrate the team’s third straight trip to the Super Bowl, and the pictures coming out of this event are wild. The team is reporting an estimated 20,000-30,000 people have showed up to Gillette Stadium for this Super Bowl sendoff party.

But based on the pictures we’ve seen, one could surmise that’s a conservative estimate.

If the Pats end up winning their sixth title in the Bill Belichick/Tom Brady era, this will look like peanuts compared to the victory parade.
