Dragon and child at Patriots' Day parade

Roll the drums! Sound the fifes! Patriots’ Day this year happens Monday, April 17, with the Minutemen Reenactment of the Battle, the Morning Youth Parade, the Ceremony on the Green, and the 2:00 p.m. Patriots’ Day Parade. As usual the festivities will begin on Saturday as we celebrate in our customary manner. Stay informed on the Town Celebrations Committee’s website and Facebook accounts: @lexingtonmapatriotsday or @LexingtonTCC.
