It’s looking like it will be a beautiful day in Southborough. That’s great news, since there are so many things to do and places to go.

With so much going on, I’ve decided to break up my events posts by theme.

Here are the many Christmas themed festivities this weekend. The biggest and most popular is of course the annual Santa Day celebration.

These don’t include the Christmas sales and Open Houses going on in town this weekend. Stay tuned for a special post on those.

As for non-holiday events scheduled for this weekend, check out my earlier post here.
