Ancient and Honorable Artillery Change of Command Ceremony and Parade - June 1.

Each year on the first Monday of June the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company reenacts the commissioning of new command officers of the Company on Boston Common.

The AHAC is joined by historic military groups from across New England including the Washington Light Infantry from South Carolina forming the largest military parade on the East Coast.

Participants include members of the USS Constitution, Massachusetts National Guard, and, on occasion the Honorable Artillery Company of London.

The parade starts at Faneuil Hall and ends at Boston Common where the Governor of the state is greeted by a volley of cannons during the change of command ceremony.

The ceremony has been a tradition since 1638.
