The Charlestown Bunker Hill Day Parade

young lady totally absorbed in playing her flute It's a Trenton Street tradition to watch the Sunday parade, first from the bottom of Trenton along Bunker Hill Street, and then when the marchers wind around, from the top of Trenton along Bartlett Street. What that means is the first time you can scout out what the good pictures are going to be, and the second time around you can be ready to take them. Even then, you have to be quick to catch a passing band before they inexorably march by, plus you have to have some luck to avoid shooting those trainers or managers or whatever those people are called who watch to see that everyone is in a straight line and on the same left foot. Anyhow it's great practice and great fun and more people should come and visit Charlestown for the parade.
