About the Event
The Concord Parade: The Concord Parade commemorates the historic clash at the North Bridge on April 19, 1775. The original Lincoln minute men marched to Concord along Sandy Pond Road, and the modern Lincoln Minute Men have retraced this march since they were re-established in 1966, and then have marched in the celebratory Parade. The distance is roughly 2.8 miles, and is enlivened by the pleasures of springtime, enjoyable conversation, soldiers’ musket firing, and the historical satisfaction of feeling like an original Lincoln patriot. Parade route begins at the intersection of Main Street and Sudbury Road in Concord. It continues along Main Street out to the North Bridge (route is dependent on water conditions by the bridge), then returns along Monument Street back to its starting location. Get there early due to road closures.
