Thursday is Southborough’s popular Gobble Wobble. For the 9th year, locals will earn their Thanksgiving dinners while supporting the Friends of Southborough Recreation.

In past years, over 1,000 locals have flocked to run the 5K. Others strutted their stuff through the 2 mile walk. And many kids whooped their way through the free Fun Run.
