Rockets' red glare saved by green from local businesses

Posted by Ralph Ranalli June 18, 2007 10:19 AM


The town’s annual free summer festival and fireworks display will kick off next weekend thanks in part to donations from two local businesses.

The fireworks display, a Southborough tradition, was in jeopardy this year until local builders Bill Depietri of Capital Group Properties and John Parsons of Parsons Commercial Group agreed to again sponsor the fireworks.

Southborough Summer Nights will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the fields at Neary school. The event includes live music from The Infractions, face-painting, pony rides, an obstacle course, food vendors, tattoos, and the fireworks at dusk. The rain date is Aug. 27.
