Honoring the first battle in Lexington and Concord!
Patriot’s Day is celebrated in Massachusetts to remember the events that took place in Boston leading to the American Revolution.

The parade stops at the Granary Burying Ground for a short service and wreath laying at the grave of Robert Keayne and Paul Revere. At the end of the parade The Massachusetts Lancers stage the rides of Paul Revere and William Dawes. From their start in the North End near the Old North Church, each ride through Boston making stops along the way to greet people until they reach the Minute Men Statue at Lexington Green. Revere’s reenactor stops at Foss Park in Somerville, Hall House in Medford Square and Arlington Town Hall before arriving at Lexington Green.
