The holiday season is always a busy – and fun – one in Southborough. To help with your planning, I’ve put together a list of all the holiday events I know about. I’ll share more detail on each of them as the dates get closer, but here are the basics so you can get them on your calendar. If you know of any events I missed, please share them in the comments.

In particular, notice that due to a North Pole scheduling conflict, Santa will be arriving in Southborough a bit later this year than normal.

Question – is Santa arriving on Saturday the 15th OR Sunday the 16th? The posting mixes up the day of the week and the date and we certainly don’t want to miss this fun event!
