Patriots’ Day 2021 is right around the corner! Even though this year’s celebrations are mostly virtual, there is still plenty of fun to be had from the comfort of your home.
Make sure to tune in at 12:30pm on Monday, April 19th for the Patriots’ Day virtual parade with Jim Shaw and Colleen Smith. Along with their coverage of the parade, there will be a special introduction by local poet Regie Gibson, and the winners of this year’s Minuteman Cane, White Tricorne Hat and Youth Commission awards will be announced.
We will also honor notable Lexingtonian Dan Fenn, who died last year, with a rebroadcast of Fenn’s talk “What Really Happened That Day” at 11am.
If you miss something in the schedule, don’t worry – the entire day of programming will repeat after the parade concludes.
There are two ways you can watch:
- Tune into LPTV on RCN 3/HD613, Comcast 8, Verizon 35.
- Watch live on our website.
The Town Celebrations Committee has also put together a number of celebratory events that you can participate in safety; see them at PatriotsDay.com.
