Northborough’s big annual community event is Applefest. It kicks off Thursday and is continuing through Sunday. (Scroll down for the schedule of official events.)

I don’t cover festivals in most communities outside our town. But our combined school district (and some sports teams) with their strong ties to Applefest make this festival an exception. For instance, the marching band and robotics team generally participate in the parade. So does the Jr. T-Hawks program.

School organizations also frequently make use of booths at the street fair to raise funds. (Like T-Hawk cheerleaders to the right, captured on Facebook at a past year’s event.)

And the Algonquin school grounds is the site of big Saturday family activities, capped by fireworks.

Here’s a list of official Applefest Events:
