Pole Capping

April 8, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Free

Each year the Bedford Minutemen have held Pole Capping.  What is it?  A young man climbs a pole following the parade from the Town Common to Willson Park, pausing as they pass the Fitch Tavern.   The pole is capped with a red cap, signifying our fight for freedom, dating to April 19, 1775.

Come to the Bedford Town Common on Saturday, April 8, 10:30 AM for the parade of Minuteman Companies marching to Willson Park.  Watch this colonial re-enactment event, as our Pole Climber climbs up the pole and places a Liberty Cap on top to protest against the King of England.  Be prepared to shout “Huzzah!”

It is a great event, sponsored with the Town of Bedford.  We are also looking for new members to join the Minuteman Company of Bedford.
