READING — Chief Mark D. Segalla and the Reading Police Department invite the community to attend the annual Fall Street Faire, which, this year, will commemorate the lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001.
Sunday, Sept. 11 from 12-5 p.m.
Parade starts at 11:30 a.m.
Parade begins at the intersection of Woburn and Lowell Streets
The Reading Fall Street Faire showcases vendors, local entertainment and a mini amusement park for children.
This year, the faire will begin with a parade in honor of the lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001. The route will begin at the stage set up at the intersection of Woburn and Lowell Streets. Members of the Reading Police Honor Guard, Irish American Police Officer’s Association Pipes and Drums, Westford Fire Regional Pipe Band, Reading Fire Department and Reading Memorial High School (RMHS) Color Guard and Marching Band will participate in the parade.
Stage performances will include patriotic numbers by the Reading Civic Band, Reading Community Singers and the RMHS Choir, as well as speeches by Deputy Chief David Clark, state Sen. Jason Lewis, state Rep. Brad Jones, state Rep. James Dwyer and Captain Mark Dwyer. Kevin McCarthy, cousin of Captain Dwyer, who is a Reading native, was a victim of the Twin Tower attacks.
“The Reading Fall Street Faire Committee has spent countless hours organizing and planning this event,” Chief Segalla said. “We encourage all Reading residents to take part in both a day of remembrance and a day of good, old-fashioned family fun.”
