BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Celebrations kicked off across the City of Boston Saturday, after Joe Biden and Kamala Harris secured the Democratic ticket to the White House.
Boston Police closed many of the streets around the Massachusetts State House on Beacon Hill, allowing the crowds of Biden/Harris supporters to celebrate the win.
After Biden was announced President-elect Saturday morning, hundreds of people who had been holding a "Count Every Vote" rally started celebrating outside Faneuil Hall and the State House, with many staying until dark.
As people danced, sang and drank champagne, a few individuals were seen climbing light poles while holding American and Gay Pride flags.
Biden supporters also spread throughout the streets near some of the city's largest university campuses, including around Northeastern University and Boston University.
Following Biden and Harris' address to the nation late Saturday night, car horns could be heard honking from the Boston Common to Copley Square as throngs of people partied into the night.
