Patriot’s Day will have a special meaning this year to the people of Boston, Massachusetts and the Boston Athletic Association. Participants and all who line the streets up to the finish line on Boylston Street will boast a patriotic spirit as a tribute and testament to “Boston Strong”. This year, the Marathon will also celebrate a “Year of Service” in honor of the 1918 Boston Marathon Military Relay and all firefighters, doctors, nurses, military, law enforcement and volunteers serving the local community and country.
Aside from the press that always surrounds the race on the 3rd Monday in April, the city of Boston, referred to as Title Town due to their commanding success in professional sports; 1st in all-time NBA Championships, 2nd in all-time Super Bowl Championships, 4th in Stanley Cup Finals won, and 5th in World Series rings, will boast a sports weekend to remember. Those in the New England area have the opportunity to see every professional sport’s team in the city – with the exception of the New England Patriots.
