Marlborough – After a hiatus of over 20 years, a carnival returned as part of Marlborough's Labor Day weekend from Aug. 30 to Sept. 1 on S. Bolton Street between Granger Boulevard and Main Street. Cushing Amusements provided kiddie and thrill rides, games with prizes, and fun food including caramel apples, cotton candy, ice cream, fried dough and popcorn.

The organizers hope that the carnival will once again become an annual event along with live entertainment and other activities at nearby Union Common in conjunction with the Marlborough Downtown Village.
