The Pilgrim Progress on Thanksgiving is limited to only 51 participants to reanact the 51 survivors of the first winter, so Mayflower descendants interested in participating should please contact Cheryl Doherty as soon as possible by email at email@example.com or by calling 508-224-2063.
Participants are asked to arrive at the Mayflower Society House at 8:30 am Thanksgiving morning where you will be matched with a Pilgrim to represent. Clothing is provided for those who do not have their own Pilgrim dress.
The Progress steps off at 10 am in costume and to the beat of a drum, the Pilgrim Progress will walk from North Street, moving down Water Street past Plymouth Rock, up Leyden Street and continue to Town Square. This historical walk re-creates the Pilgrims’ procession to church and will end at Burial Hill where a short Pilgrim worship service will take place at the site of the original fort/meeting house.
If dressing up isn't your thing, all are welcome to attend the worship service in Burial Hill. First instituted in 1921 as a part of the Town's Tercentenary Celebration, the procession and service has become a town tradition. We would love to have you join us and be a part of history.
