Families of the victims killed in the Boston Marathon bombing gathered near the finish line on Saturday to mark the 10th anniversary of the tragedy. The memorial sites were marked with three stone pillars for each of the three victims, and wreaths were laid at each location. A bagpiper played “The Bells of Dunblane” as the somber procession took place, and a brief ceremony at the marathon finish line followed later in the day, with bells ringing and a moment of silence.

Boston Mayor Michelle Wu and Gov. Maura Healey joined the families in paying their respects. The 127th running of the Boston Marathon is scheduled for Monday. Onlookers, including past marathon runners, expressed their ongoing support for the families and the resilience of the city.

The 2013 bombings killed three people and injured over 260 others. In the days that followed, an MIT police officer and a Boston police officer were also killed. The surviving bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, is currently appealing his death sentence in federal court.

In remembrance of the victims, survivors, and first responders, “One Boston Day” has been established, with acts of kindness and service taking place throughout the city. This year, nearly two dozen community service projects are happening, including a shoe drive, food drives, blood drives, and neighborhood cleanups.
