Patriot's Day ~ Celebrate in Kennebunkport
The young Patriot pictured here is undoubtedly celebrating a day off from school.
Also worthy of celebration on Patriot's Day is the running of the world famous Boston Marathon. This year will be the 111th running of the event and is expected to draw more than 20,000 participants. Approximately 500,000 spectators can be expected to line the route and cheer the runners along.
That's not all, on this same day since 1960 the Boston Red Sox have played a home game at Fenway which began at 11:00 am. Beginning this year, the first pitch will be thrown at 10:00 am. This change was made to coincide with the change of the start of this year's marathon. The start of the game is intended to coordinate the estimated completion of the 9 innings with the appearance of the marathon runners in Kenmore Square. The (hopefully) happy fans spill into the square to cheer on the marathon runners.
One more reason for celebration...procrastinators rejoice, Tax Day this year is not the usual April 15th. Because of the weekend, followed by Patriot's Day, Tax Day has been extended to April 17th.
With all these reasons to cheer, why not do your celebrating at The Maine Stay Inn here in Kennebunkport. We have some great two and three night packages.
