The two men vying to be the next mayor of Boston skirted victory parade traffic Saturday to make their closing pitches in a flurry of retail campaign stops.
While much of the city was consumed with cheering trophy-bearing duck boats, John R. Connolly and Martin J. Walsh brought their final-days urgency to a tight race, with polls showing a bloc of undecided voters that could determine the outcome.
To reach them, both candidates hopscotched across the city.
Walsh visited Dorchester, East Boston, Hyde Park, West Roxbury, the Back Bay, and the Theater District. Connolly was booked for Roslindale, Dorchester, the West End, Roxbury, East Boston, Charlestown, the Back Bay, Jamaica Plain, and Hyde Park.
The candidates’ paths crossed in East Boston, where both appeared at the ribbon-cutting for a new library branch.
