It’s hard to believe it’s already been a year since the bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. There were lots of things happening at the park in what was overall quite a festive weekend.

It’s amazing to see what a difference just one year can make in people’s lives. Here are my photos and videos from all the highlights this weekend.

Sports have a way of bringing people together. In the wake of the tragedies of the Boston Marathon, I think the city has been itching to get back to normalcy.

What better way to do that than with a Red Sox game at Fenway Park? After a city-wide lockdown during the tail end of an intense manhunt extended into Friday evening, Friday’s originally scheduled game was postponed. Today, we’ve got a double-header to make up for that game, but yesterday’s game, the first home game since the attacks, was one to remember. 

The pre-game ceremony was both solemn and comforting, and the game finished with a storybook ending – a late inning come from behind win off of Daniel Nava’s three run home run.

Here are my images from throughout the day.
