Marching Orders

Our Route!

(some deviation may apply)


We  gather by the water at Peirce Island from 6 to 7pm, with procession to begin at 7pm. Leave over the Mechanic Street bridge (becoming known as "Heartbreak Hill"), with views of the Portsmouth Fishing Pier on one side, and the scenic South End on the other. Proceed past Point of Graves Burial Ground, turning right onto Marcy Street and between Strawbery Banke and Prescott Park to State Street intersection. Hook a right to go under the Memorial Bridge and up to Bow Street, down to Market, proceeding through Market Square, past the North Church to Fleet Street. Turn left on Fleet, left again onto the length of State Street to conclude at Prescott Park, where musical acts and larger participating groups will be invited to continue performing at a wild rumpus at the end.
