Wilbraham Peach Festival

This August celebration of the local peach harvest includes a wide variety of food and entertainment, a parade featuring the year's Peach Queen and court, a classic car cruise, a five-mile road race, and a fireworks extravaganza. Artists and craftsmen display their work alongside exhibits by local businesses and civic groups. All proceeds from the volunteer-run event fund local community projects and scholarships for area students.

Originally submitted by: Richard E. Neal, Representative (2nd District).
