The Southborough Recreation Department has shared its official schedule for Heritage Day.
Some old traditions are gone (like the Community House luncheon), but new events have popped up. So there’s plenty of entertainment for everyone.
Take a look at the timing of events below, and make your plans accordingly.
(If you have yet to sign your organization up for a booth or to march in the parade, you are running out of time. Please call the Rec Dept at 508-229-4452.)
