It's celebrated the third Monday in April to commemorate the battle of Lexington and Concord in 1775.
I forgot about it until Sunday night when I heard it on the nightly news. Hmmmm....maybe a field trip was in order.
Monday morning, I googled what was going on in Lexington and since they were having a few activities, we packed up and headed out.
Scenes around the Battle Green.
There were many flags set up that aren't normally there. They were so beautiful!
The kids were fascinated by the size of these Clydsdale horses.
The parade lasted for an hour and 15 minutes and we had just enough time to dash a few miles down the road to the Minuteman National Park to see a half hour multi-media presentation on the Battle of Lexington and Concord. It's free and nicely done. Afterwards, Jake and Zoey scored a picture with this Redcoat soldier.
It was a good day!
