LEE, Mass. — The town will celebrate Massachusetts Founders Weekend, for the 16th time beginning Friday, Sept. 24.

Featured events of Founders Weekend kick off with “Taste of Lee,” on Friday, Sept. 24, with food vendors and area restaurants lining Main Street with everything from clam chowder to crabcakes to pizza, fried dough and more; live music will be provided Moonshine Holler and the Housatonic Philharmonic.

On Saturday, Sept. 25 at 11 a.m., the “Hometown Parade,” organized by VFW Post 893, takes center stage. Following the parade is Robin O’Herin singing the Blues in front of Main Street's Cakewalk Café, and kids' favorite Terry a la Berry on the Lee library lawn at 1:30 p.m. Festival Italiano begins at 1 p.m. with food, and Richard Fabozzi takes stage under the tent in the park. Festival Latino takes over the park at 4 p.m. with more food, music and entertainment celebrating Lee’s Latino community.

Sunday, Sept. 26 at 8:30 a.m., the Lee Kiwanis Club offers a pancake breakfast and at 1:30 p.m., the Tri-Town Rotary and Lee Chamber of Commerce put on a Duck Race. The full Eagles Band performs under the tent in the park at 1 p.m. 

Throughout the three-day period, look for sidewalk sales, restaurant specials, craft vendors, live music, children’s activities and a host of other things to do.
