A Beautiful Sunday in Holliston

by The Publishers

On the final Sunday of Summer 2019 the sun was bright and the people were out soaking up all that Mother Nature and Holliston had to offer.

On the Upper Charles Rail Trail, the Friends of Holliston Trails set up an Ambassador station at Blair Square providing tips and tools on trail etiquette and safety.

Ed Daniels shows off some of the swag the Friends were passing out to folks using the trail.  He shared with us that many of the trail users he encountered while manning the station were not from Holliston.  The trail seems to be a popular destination for out-of-town visitors.

These riders had just had bells installed on their bikes courtesy of the Friends.  Seen in the background is the safety beacon at Central Street.  Please remember to push the button to activate the flashers before entering the crosswalk.

'Deke' was all smiles as his 2-legged and 4-legged friends visited Blair Square.  Deke and the other Friends of the Trails will hold another Ambassador day on Sunday, October 13th.

The Historical Society lawn was packed with vendors and shoppers for the annual Harvest Fair.

Of course the Fair would not be The Fair if Bea Hait (fresh from her COTY honors) were not watching over the comings and goings.

Members of "Always in Season" were tuning up when we came by the music tent.  Some in the group came all the way from Rhode Island to provide their folk music.

Regalo and Nacho the Alpacas returned to Holliston from their new home in Harvard.

Sunday's activities capped off a very spectacular and special weekend in Holliston.  Thanks to all who made it happen!
