During the Boston marathon, on April 15, 2013, two bombs exploded at 2:49 p.m. EDT, killing 3 people and injuring 282. The bombs exploded about 13 seconds and 210 yards apart near the finish line.
The Great Parade will dedicate a special moment of silence during the parade to pay tribute & in memory of those that have fallen.
Participating in the parade will be a group called, "Fuelled by the Fallen'. They are a non-profit org. to assist & support the families of those whose members have fallen in the line of duty. Their collection of unique race cars travel all over America to promote the memories of our fallen heroes in a way that is attracting to young and old alike.
We are honored by their participation and look forward to sharing the special day of Lag B'Omer with them.
