PHOTOS: Thousands Flock to Watertown for the 2012 Faire on the Square, Including Elizabeth Warren

The Democratic senate candidate joined those who gathered in Watertown Square for the annual town celebration.

Drizzly skys gave way to a warm sunny fall afternoon and provided perfect setting for Watertown's annual celebration - the Faire on the Square.

Thousands from Watertown and beyond came out to the event, including Massachusetts senatorial candidate Elizabeth Warren. 

Visitors could enjoy food from dozens of local restaurants, music by Beatlejuice - a Beatles cover band and catch a dance performance. A variety of arts and crafts were available in the parking lot behind the Watertown Free Public Library.

Kiddies had their choice of rides - a mini ferris wheel, a carousel or pony rides.

The day also provides an opportunity for local organizations, businesses and non-profit groups to let people know what they are all about.

@WatObserver, the crowd was 1/32 the estimate given by our friend Sonny. It was the usual gathering of radical leftwingers. Plenty of rank and file working class Democrats came by Scott Brown's table, asking for signs, telling us they were life long Democrats but wanted nothing to do with Elizabeth Warren.

Sonny, no personal insults! I deleted your last comment.

I wasn't there but in the photos online, it looked like more than 25 people. What I especially loved was her talking with the "newspeople" from the schools in town. Classy of her to spend that time with them and answer their questions.

I was busy at the Patch table, but I hear that Warren spent about 45 minutes walking around the Faire and was approached by many supporters.

Steve Aylward was certainly at the Faire on Square and from 10:30 AM to Noon, he then went elsewhere in the district.
