Wrentham Day Set for September 10

Wrentham Day Set for September 10

By Angie Fitton

Wrentham Day is upon us once again! The town is invited to celebrate all things Wrentham on Saturday, September 10 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This popular community event began in the early ‘80s and is still going strong.

Taking place on the town common, Wrentham Day will feature 60-70 vendor booths. These booths include town departments, games, crafts, food, information about real estate and even some politicians. There’s something for visitors of all ages.

 The popular Wrentham Wroad Wrace 5k is a highlight of the day. Drawing in between 125-150 runners, it starts at 10 a.m. on Taunton Street. The Wrentham Fire Department, Police Department and Department of Public Works will line the street to host “Touch a Truck,” an event where children can explore all the departments’ vehicles.

The Wrentham Youth Baseball and Softball teams will be serving cookout-style hamburgers and hot dogs while the Lions Club will provide ice cream sundaes. If you’re in the mood for clam chowder, be sure to visit the Fire Department booth.

Pat the Patriot, the mascot of the New England Patriots, will be walking around from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and there will be an appearance by Benjamin the Clown, an annual favorite who loves to juggle and do magic tricks. A kids’ train will be running all day, providing rides all around the common area.

According to Wrentham Recreation Department Director Jeff Plympton, Wrentham Day is “well-attended by a majority of the town.” Not only will everyone have activities to participate in, but the day will be filled with live music and a D.J. too.

Be sure to stop by and enjoy the beginning of the fall season while celebrating your hometown.
