Northborough – Families headed to the Northborough Historical Society for a variety of Applefest events on Sunday, Sept.? 16, including an ice cream social featuring “make-your-own” sundaes and old-fashioned ice cream floats. Participants were entertained with live bluegrass music by the Stony Hollow String Dusters, and were free to explore vintage farm implements and toys displayed on the front lawn, as well as the Museum itself.

The art show “Art in Bloom,” featuring paintings from Northborough Art Guild members and floral arrangements from the Northborough Garden Club, also took place inside the Historical Society.
