WESTBOROUGH – On May 6, nearly 100 children broke out their bikes, trikes and scooters to take part in a family parade at Hastings Elementary School.

Participants rode around the school grounds then took part in a post-race raffle.

The event was part of the week-long Westborough Unplugs Week, sponsored by Westborough Connects.

The parade featured an escort by members of the Westborough Police Department’s bike patrol unit.

Dairy Queen donated discount coupons as well as a chance to win an ice cream cake.
Several other vendors also donated to the post-race raffle.

Other events included Reading Buddies at the Westborough Public Library on May 10; and Unplug and Explore Nourse Farm on May 11.

Westborough Connects collaborates with community partners and organizations on programs and initiatives that connect people to each other, the resources they need and the community they live in.
