The First Annual Middleborough-Lakeville Herring Run Festival

This is the weekend of the Middleborough-Lakeville Herring Run Festival at Oliver Mills Park. On Saturday it ran from 10 AM to 4 PM and on Sunday it will be open from 11 AM to 4 PM. At the town hall in Middleborough tonight from 7 o'clock on their will be a magic show and music at a cost of $10 per adult and $25 per family up to six.

I arrived in the morning while I was setting up and got to talk with a number of the vendors and exhibitors which included community and government vendors and exhibitors, food vendors, and all of the mill business vendors and exhibitors. There was something for everyone. There was music in talks for the adults, face painting for the children and of course the herring running up the Nemasket River. The children were having a great time trying to capture a herring.
