Greek Independence Day Parade, Sunday, April 30, 2017
The annual Greek Independence Day Parade will take place in the Back Bay on Sunday, April 30, 2017. The parade and related events will result in street closures and traffic detours, and reduce on-street parking availability. Those coming into Boston for the festivities are encouraged to take alternative forms of transportation, including Hubway and the MBTA. Information on Hubway, the regional bike-share service, may be found at www.theHubway.com and information on the MBTA may be found at www.MBTA.com.
