If you were thinking of heading out of town for Columbus Day weekend, you may want to reconsider. Southborough’s Heritage Day “Eve” is shaping up to be a holiday all its own.

Chestnut Hill Farm is launching a free festival that Sunday, October 11 to tie in with Heritage Day and the annual “pumpkin wall” the night before.

This revitalization of the farm’s historic festival will include activities for all ages. . .

Prepare your pumpkin for the town’s lighting that evening!
