Veterans' Day in Boston

By November 10, 2009

Follow me on:

Don't have to work on Veterans' Day? There's plenty in the city to keep you busy, while remembering what the holiday is all about in the first place.

Boston will host its annual Veterans' Day ceremony tomorrow morning at 11, the perfect way to support and show appreciation for those who have served this country. The event, held at the state house's Memorial Hall, is free and open to the public.

The Second Annual Veteran Training Freedom Trail Walk will also take place tomorrow between 11 a.m. and 11 p.m. All those wishing to walk the trail with Veteran Training are welcome at any point during those hours, and are asked to donate a minimum of $35, the amount it costs to send a care package to a single soldier or disabled veteran.

Veterans and active duty military will also eat free of charge at Applebees restaurants nationwide (click here to find your nearest location), and whether you're a veteran or not, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts is free for the day.
