Spirit of Shrewsbury Festival celebrates its 16th year
Shrewsbury – The Spirit of Shrewsbury Festival celebrates its 16th year, and will be held Sept. 28 –30. From its inception, the goal of the Spirit of Shrewsbury has been to provide an opportunity for our community to come together. There is no better place to do this than at the variety of events that the Festival offers. They are meant to provide a display for the town’s cultural and historic wealth and to enhance Shrewsbury’s image to both residents and businesses.
The theme of the Festival this year is “Neighbors Helping Neighbors,” which summarizes all the ways local residents, organizations and businesses have been supporting each other since the town was first settled in 1722.
This year, the Festival will add a new event, “Family Treats Under The Tent.” It will be hosted under the tent in front of the Oak Middle School Sunday, Sept.29, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. This event will include music, activities, snacks and drinks. Come enjoy before, during and after the Parade.
Also Sept. 29, the Knights of Columbus Road Race will be held as usual, while the Town Expo, and craft fair will provide entertainment, food, giveaways, products, services and information at the Oak Middle School.
The Parade continues its Sunday tradition, including a Senior Tribute at the Senior Center to honor all town residents age 90 and over, a float competition and a new Grand Marshall, Elaine Leblanc, Director of Human Services at St. Anne’s Church.
The scarecrow competition on the Town Common also returns this year, as well as a jack-o-lantern display.
