The Town has released it’s official schedule for Heritage Day – the weekend after this one. So, it’s a good time to remind you of other events linked to the weekend.

Sunday, October 7, 2018:

As usual, Chestnut Hill Farm will hold a special festival. Stay tuned for a separate post on the 10:00 am – 3:00 pm event.

As I previously posted, that night is a 20 year old tradition, newly dubbed the Pumpkin Stroll. Drop-off decorated pumpkins 4:00 – 6:00 pm. Viewing hours are 6:00 – 8:00 pm.

The big event is the day itself, with the parade and festivities.

The schedule doesn’t necessarily capture everything. For instance, the Southborough Historical Society was asking for volunteers to help them put Heritage back into the day. (If you’re interested in helping them, click here for more on that.)

If your organization/booth has something special planned that day, let me know. You can post a comment below or email mysouthborough@gmail.com with subject line “Heritage Day Activity”.
