MARLBOROUGH – Despite gray and cool conditions, there was plenty of fun for families at the annual Marlborough Family Fun Festival on Sunday, May 5, at Ward Park.

Booths lined one side of the park, while a beer garden and a stage for live music were on the other side. There were also sports clinics featuring the Marlboro Shamrocks.

At one end of the field, kids ran through mounds of foam; some flecks of foam broke away and carried in the wind, covering parts of the field with a very soapy facsimile of snow. Nearby were several children’s games, including ring toss, along with a couple of bounce houses.

There were several food trucks for those wanting to purchase a hot lunch.

Mayor J. Christian Dumais and his staff offered free books and lots of candy. They also offered information on the official opening of the Lake Williams boardwalk the following day, May 6.

Flippo the Clown performed a show of juggling and magic; Jake the Worcester Bravehearts mascot also made an appearance.

The event was sponsored by the Marlborough Rotary, Marlborough Eagles #3565, Marlborough Lions and GFWC Marlborough Junior Woman’s Club.
