Mayor Walsh declared April 15th, One Boston Day. April 15th marks the anniversary of the marathon bombing. 

Here is a description:
April 15th marks the beginning of a new annual Boston tradition: One Boston Day. This day will be a celebration of the resiliency, generosity, and strength of the people that make Boston the great city it is.

  • This is a day for businesses and organizations to display their humanity and draw neighbors together
  • On this day, we remember and reflect. We greet our neighbors. We lend a hand. We reach out, give back, and go above and beyond

Hopefully communities, residents, businesses, and organizations in the Boston area can strive to work together all the time, not just for one day.
