    Eastern MA has a whole batch of revolutionary war reenactments starting the same morning as the Boston Marathon.  Those reenactments involve replica 18th century guns, which use black powder, rather than modern brass cartridges.  While I've only ever been a spectator to these, I assume that there is normally a spike in people buying black powder in MA every April as a result.
