The runners on the Boston Marathon’s course weren’t the only ones bringing their A-game on Monday.
The marathon was held on Patriots’ Day for the first time since 2019, and with its return to spring came the crowds along the route — and their homemade signs.
From Hopkinton to Boston’s Back Bay, spectators came prepared with posters that included messages ranging from encouraging to punny to playful.
Here’s a look at some of the signs spotted along the 26.2 mile course.
