Pole Capping

April 11, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Free

Each year the Bedford Minuteman Company holds a Pole Capping Parade that steps off from the Common and marches past the Fitch Tavern, and onto Willson Park.  Many colonial companies from surrounding towns attend, including a few of those wearing Red Coats.  After a brief ceremony, a young man shinnies up the pole to cap it with a Red Cap. This is to re-enact the flag hoisted up the Liberty Pole when the colonists were fighting for their freedom n 1775.
