Hundreds of Boston residents flocked to Boston Common on Saturday, Nov. 7 to celebrate the election of Joe Biden as the 46th president of the United States. Several major news networks called Biden’s victory in the election Saturday morning after four days of vote-counting. Biden's running mate Kamala Harris will become the first woman vice president. The festivities — which included dancing, tossing around a Donald Trump doll, climbing atop lamp posts and traffic lights, and waving Biden-Harris flags — resulted in a traffic standstill and constant honks from cars surrounding the Common.
