A Hurry of Hoofs in a Village Street

To be honest, Somerville doesn’t even have to offer activities on Patriots’ Day to catch my attention with that poster.

But in fact the city plans a Colonial Fair for families in Foss Park, Fellsway West and Broadway, from 10:00 to 11:30 A.M. Paul Revere and his horse will come through. Try to behave yourselves.
