Sun Battles Clouds, Greeks Totally Shine at Boston Parade

BOSTON, MA – Beneath partly-cloudy skies in Boston, the 21st annual New England Greek Parade was held on April 26.
Just like the start of the New York Parade in New York on March 29, a not-widely-reported incident occupied the attention of the police department. The police cordoned off the area in front of the landmark Boston Public in Copley Square, along the Parade’s route. TNH inquired and learned that while there was no bomb threat, someone in the area was behaving strangely.
Present at the parade was former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis, Petros Galatoulas, the president of the Federation of Hellenic Societies of Greater New York, which organizes the Parade on Fifth Avenue, and NY Peter Galatoulas, and Karyn Polito, Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts, Karin policies, who declared in reference to the parade “this is a great day for New England.”
Dukakis said that “this parade makes me remember my childhood and celebrating March 25th.” The Parade commenced with the roar of police motorcycles and Chief of Police William B. Evans.
Mayor Martin J. Walsh, who was a Grand Marshal, due to other commitments arrived late but offered greetings.
For the first time in the New England Parade’s history, representatives of the large and dynamic community of Boston Armenians marched, apropos of the commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide that have been taking place across the country.
