Relive Paul Revere’s historic ride on April 15

220px-Paul_Revere's_rideWanna travel through time and revisit the days of yore?

Somerville’s Historic Preservation Commission is re-living Paul Revere’s historic ride (although, as some know, Revere is revered thanks to Henry Wadworth Longfellow’s poem while his peers like William Dawes are historically overlooked)  from Boston through Somerville and onto Lexington and Concord.

The 2013 Colonial Fair at Foss Park will boast Revolutionary War-era games. Volunteers at the kid-friendly event will be handing out Colonial Passports and dress in era-specific clothing. Yep, the British are coming.

10-11:30 a.m. Monday, April 15 at Foss Park, Broadway & Fellsway West in Somerville.
