Get your pumpkins ready: Light Up Southborough is Sunday night

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts., Sunday night is Southborough Rotary Club’s annual Light Up Southborough. For those of you unfamiliar, it’s a display of lit pumpkins that line the stone wall running around the Old Burial Ground.

They begin on Common Street next to the Southborough Library, running up the hill, and around the corner on St. Mark’s Street. 

The lit display is from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Based on years past, you can expect the Rotary Club to be on hand selling refreshments.

If you are contributing, drop off your pumpkins from 4:00 – 6:00 pm. (If you want them back, make sure to fetch them on Monday morning.)

Every year, designs cover a range of traditional, spooky, beautiful, wacky, and clever. Something always surprises me. (Check out these highlights from last year.)

I’m looking forward to it again this weekend. But first, I need to help my kids decorate theirs.

Just in time, Chestnut Hill Farm’s 10:00 am – 4:00 pm festival on Sunday again includes pumpkin decorating. (Stay tuned for more details on that event.)

Or, if you’re looking for another source in town for pumpkins, you can check out Gulbankian’s Farms. The garden center’s Facebook page is boasting a big selection of pumpkins and gourds.
