Patriots Day is Monday, April 15th
Celebrate Patriots Day with a Family Picnic or Block Party BBQ. The weather is perfect for Hamburgers & Hot Dogs on the grill or that intoxicating smell of the pecan wood in the smoker. Fat Freddy’s Catering can help you create the food and the atmosphere… just add family and friends.
Patriots Day was originally celebrated on April 19, the actual anniversary of the battles (fought in 1775). Since 1969, it has been observed on the third Monday in April in Massachusetts and in Maine. The Monday holiday creates a three-day long weekend. It is also the first day of a vacation week for public schools in both states and a school holiday for many local colleges and universities, both public and private. It’s like our Spring Break, here in Arizona.
Observances and re-enactments of the battles occur annually at Lexington Green in Lexington, Massachusetts (around 6:00 am) and the Old North Bridge in Concord, Massachusetts (around 9:00 am). In the morning, mounted re-enactors with state police escorts retrace the Midnight Rides of Paul Revere and William Dawes, calling out warnings the whole way.
The most significant celebration of Patriots’ Day is the Boston Marathon, which has been run every Patriots’ Day since April 19, 1897 to mark the then-recently established holiday, with the race linking the Athenian and American struggles for liberty.
