A tradition since 1786, the Bunker Hill Day Parade commemorates the Battle of Bunker Hill which was fought on Breed's Hill on June 17, 1775 in Charlestown, Massachusetts. The Battle of Bunker Hill was the first major battle of the American Revolution.
The annual Bunker Hill Day parade is a family event with a route all around Charlestown. Families have been enjoying the Bunker Hill Day parade for years and years.
Parade begins at the intersection of Vine and Bunker Hill St. and down Main street, and concludes on Winthrop St. by the Charlestown Militia Training Field.
The 2017 Battle Of Bunker Hill Parade is dedicated to the memory the nine Firefighters who died in the Hotel Vendome.
