Southborough – Residents and visitors of all ages enjoyed the pleasant weather Aug. 27 while attending the 13th annual Southborough Summer Nights on the grounds of Margaret A. Neary Elementary School. Although their ages varied, the guests shared one common goal: to have fun.

The evening of family fun featured inflatable amusements, pony and horse rides, rock wall climbing, video arcade on wheels, basketball shootout, 65-foot obstacle course, speed pitch, face painting and a photo booth. Guests browsed tables and met representatives from nonprofit organizations and businesses.

Dinner and snacks were available at a food court with live entertainment provided on the field by the band The Infractions. On the tennis courts, children learned basic engineering at an interactive demonstration by the award-winning Algonquin Robotics Team 1100. Festivities concluded with fireworks.

The event is presented by Southborough Recreation in conjunction with the Friends of Southborough Recreation and support from local businesses. For information about upcoming Southborough Recreation activities, visit southborough.recdesk.com and on Facebook at facebook.com/southboroughrec.
