FRAMINGHAM – On a sunny, autumn day families gathered along the shore of Farm Pond in Framingham to celebrate the town;s culture, its amenities, its crafts, and its cycling history.
The festival, organized by the Framingham Downtown Renaissance organization, was cancelled last year due to the weather, and postponed from the Columbus Day weekend due to the weather.
New this year was a costumed dog show, partly sponsored by FramBark, and organization that wants to bring a dog park to Framingham. State representative candidate Jack Patrick Lewis and his son were judges.
Also new this year was an antique bicycle show, sponsored by Cisco Cycles located on Route 135. The Framingham business specializes in restoring classic bikes, and is planning to open a vintage bike museum.
Returning was PaddleBoston.com, which bought canoes and kayaks for individuals and families to use on the pond.
There was also a capoeira performance, horse rides courtesy of the National Lancers, based in Framingham; and a show by JoJo the Magician.
Musicians performed, while attendees could show local artisans and crafters.
