In case you missed it, or forgot, Southborough’s end of summer celebration is next week. Summer Nights takes place the evening of Saturday, August 27. (Or the next day if pushed by weather.)
The festival begins at 5:00 pm and ends with the pyrotechnics after dark.
I’ll post next Friday on parking details, etc. But for now, let’s focus on the fun.
For music, they are bringing back a popular past act, the Infractions. I’m told they’re even bigger and better this year.
Free fun for kids includes “games galore” Balloon twisters, and these returning favorites:
- Pony rides
- Face Painters
- Rock Climbing Wall
- Inflatable Moon Bounces
- 65’ Inflatable Obstacle Course
- Video Arcade on Wheels
- ARHS Robotics Team Demonstrations
- Photo Booth
- Basketball Shootout
Free fun doesn’t mean leave your wallet at home. After all, what’s a festival without food?
This year, Julianne’s Catering joins the fray, slinging wood-fired oven pizza. There will also be a Mexican Food truck, Trombetta’s Creamery, Dean’s Concessions Food Truck, Domino’s Pizza and Yummy Mummy Brownies.
If you enjoy checking out the vendor booths (often with free giveaways to draw you in), you’ll see The Children’s Workshop, New England Music Academy, Meininger Family Chiropractor, Middlesex Savings Bank, Fay School, Tick-Ease, Cub Scout Pack 1 Southborough, Renewal by Andersen, and Pennant CrossFit.
Southborough Recreation asked me to thank the event sponsors, especially the big ones: Capital Group, S and L Therapy, Brenden Properties, Ken’s Foods, St. Mary’s Credit Union and Friends of Southborough Recreation.
