The official Patch Applefest Street Fair 2012 video that you should watch.
It was windy, but nothing a few rocks couldn't solve, holding down papers and items where need be.

You could order a prayer by a guy at a steel drum, catch apples from Wegmans, enter a drawing by the Northborough Recreation Department and jump around in the moonbounce or on the fire truck. Dawn's School of Dance and Project Jay Fitness performed, and there were karate demonstrations. It's all right here in our video package. Add your photos and videos by …
