BOSTON (AP) — The governor and the mayor of Boston are scheduled to participate in a Boston Strong celebration this weekend.

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker and Democratic Mayor Marty Walsh will participate Saturday in the unveiling of a tribute to unity in the aftermath of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings.

They will be joined by marathon Executive Director Thomas Grilk.

The unveiling will take place at the Bowker Overpass at the intersection of Commonwealth Avenue and Charlesgate West.

The tribute will be visible to runners in the 120th Boston Marathon on April 18.

This year’s race is the third since two pressure cooker bombs were set off near the finish line in 2013, killing three people and injuring more than 260.
