The boat parade will begin Wednesday at 1 p.m. EST on the Hillsborough River near downtown Tampa, according to the team. Fans will be able to watch the parade at various spots along the river, and masks will be required at the event.

The NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning celebrated their Stanley Cup victory in similar fashion in September. The Lightning held a socially distant boat parade after beating the Dallas Stars in six games.

On Sunday, the Buccaneers became the first team in NFL history to play in -- and win -- a Super Bowl at their own stadium. With the victory, future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady secured his seventh Super Bowl ring.

It was the Bucs' second championship in franchise history. The team last captured the Vince Lombardi Trophy in the 2002-03 season, when Jon Gruden was head coach of the Buccaneers.
