Yes. Patriots Day is a state holiday. It commemorates the Battles of Lexington and Concord. There are re-enactments (at ungodly hours of the morning) in both of those towns, the Boston Marathon is run every year on Patriots' Day, and the Red Sox play at home starting at 11:00 every year on that day also. It's rather a big deal for us.
