Rescheduled Southborough Summer Nights offers amusements, entertainment and more
Southborough – Southborough Summer Nights has been rescheduled for Friday, Sept. 30, starting at 5 p.m., at Neary School on Parkerville Road. In true Southborough fashion, the Southborough Summer Nights event has come together with tremendous support from the town and surrounding area businesses and organizations.
This year, the amusements and entertainment will include an obstacle course, rock wall, dunk tank, moon walk, pony rides, basketball shoot out, face painting and the popular bubble romp.

The random drawing for each exciting raffle will take place around 8 p.m., followed by the spectacular display of fireworks sponsored by Bill Depietri of Capital Group Properties and the non-profit organization, Friends of Southborough Recreation. Representatives Carolyn Dykema and Steven Levy and Senator Jamie Eldridge stepped up again this year, as well as newcomer Rhythm Dance Company – a new dance school in Westborough – as band sponsors.
