Patriots' Day, 2010

| No TrackBacks
20074195.thb.jpgThe facts are thus: The annual Commemoration of the North Bridge Fight at the North Bridge, Concord is at 8:30 am. British and Colonial reenactors stage a battle demonstration of the fight on April 19, 1775 -- some argue, when the "shot heard round the world" was fired. (Others insist it was in Lexington the night before -- they may well have a point, but this is the Concord, MA blog and we're not going to entertain it.)

The Patriot's Day Parade steps off at the Armory on the corner of Stow and Everett Streets at 9 AM on Monday, April 19, 2010.

It goes down Stow Street and up Main Street, and -- depending upon the height of the Concord River and how much water/mud are at the North Bridge (always a joker in the deck!) -- goes up Lowell Road to Liberty Street, and then into the National Park to the North Bridge.

A ceremony is held at the bridge and then the parade picks up again, going over to Monument Street, back to Concord center, returning to Main Street, turning onto Stow and then ending at the Hunt Gym.

Please note that due to our recent flooding, parts of the National Park were damaged and are not at the moment handicapped accessible. See their website here: http://www.nps.gov/mima/index.htm for more information.

For additional events connected with the park during the week, see here: http://www.nps.gov/mima/patriots-day-2010.htm

We predict that the weather on Patriots' Day will be sunny, cloudy, raining, snowing, sleeting, windy, or calm... or some combination of the preceding. (Another joker in the deck!) A map of the area is below.
