The Upton Days Festival begins Friday evening with baby, food and coloring contests and karaoke.

All events will be in the Community Center at 377 College St. There is a $2 admission fee at the door for all events with no charge for ages 10 and younger.

Kathy Williamson, one of the event’s organizers, said she has fielded several calls about the baby contest from non-local residents. The contest is limited to Upton residents only.
