Southborough – The Southborough Summer Nights event is bringing together another spectacular evening of entertainment, fireworks and family fun for Southborough residents. This year will mark the 13th anniversary of the locally funded event which will be held on Saturday, Aug. 27, starting at 5 p.m. at the Margaret A. Neary School, with a rain date of Sunday, Aug. 28.
The Infractions, a popular dance band, will perform followed by the fireworks display, put on by Atlas Pyro Vision Productions, at the Neary field. The fireworks are sponsored by Capital Group Properties, Brendon Properties and Speech and Language Therapies of Southborough.
Each year, Summer Nights provides exciting attractions to include every age group. Popular attractions, such as the rock climbing wall, pony rides, 65-foot obstacle course, face-painting, balloon twisting, rolling video cart and many more will be returning.
Southborough Summer Nights could not be possible without the support and commitment of its sponsors: Ken’s Foods, St. Mary’s Credit Union, Eagle Leasing, Fay School, Marlborough Savings Bank, Middlesex Savings Bank, New England Center for Children, Phaneuf Concrete Cutting & Breaking, Senator Jamie Eldridge, State Representative Carolyn Dykema and Tomasso Trattoria. Food outlets will include Dominos of Southborough, Dean’s Concessions, Northeast of the Border Mexican Food truck, Juliana’s Catering, Trombetta’s Creamery and Yummy Mummy Brownies. This event is entirely funded by their donations and each year they willingly support this event.
“Our local businesses are incredibly generous year after year and we can’t thank them enough,” said Doreen Ferguson, director at Southborough Recreation.
Support from the community is not limited to monetary donations. An event this large requires a commitment from the town as a whole. The event relies heavily on the assistance of the Police, Fire, Community Emergency Response Team, and Public Works departments.
“Each year, we appreciate the help and support the town departments provide to us,” said Ferguson.
