HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) - Boston's agony was very much on the minds of people in Western Massachusetts Sunday.
A Holyoke Police cruiser provided safe escort for the many hundreds of people who took part in a memorial walk through downtown Holyoke Sunday afternoon. It was called the Holyoke Walk for Boston.
They told 22News they were sending a message of support to the people of Boston.
"You have probably a couple of thousand to tell the people of Boston we may be from the western part of the state but we here for you, we're here for you, whatever you need, give us a call," said Todd McGee of Holyoke.
The marchers also showed their support with the signs they held in the parade. And as they marched the length of downtown Holyoke, their numbers increased as others joined the line of march for Holyoke Walk for Boston.
