Monday was great weather for the annual fall festival, Southborough’s Heritage Day.
The parade was a long one with what seemed like half the kids in town marching. There were scouts, youth sports, school bands, and families representing community groups. Marchers were led by the public safety vehicles, veterans and elected town and state officials. As usual, the street was lined with onlookers, including kids happy to be catching the candy being tossed by some of the marchers.
Following the parade, the field was crowded with people checking out the many tents. There was also a decent crowd at the annual Library Book and Bake Sale.
(There were other satellite events, but I was unable to make it out to them and no one shared photos. If anyone wants to share pictures from the Historical Society events or the Art Show, I’d love to add them.)
Many of the photos below are from public postings to social media, and several are contributed. (But most are by my family.) For photo credits, click to enlarge.

Local media also covered Monday’s fun.
Ed Karvoski Jr. wrote about it for the Community Advocate, including seven photos:
Metrowest Daily News and Wicked local shared online another 7 photos by staff photographer Art Illman:
