Brown, a Wrentham native, competed on “American Idol” in 2006 and made it to the semifinals.

“She seems really nice and she puts on a nice show,” said Jason LaCroix, president of the Homecoming board of directors.

Foodies finding good eats

As popular as the craft tents are this week, some visitors to Market Square come for the food.

Jeff Krumrine, a local solutions engineer in the IT field, said during Tuesday’s craft show that food was his motive to be outdoors at noon.

“I had a great meal at the Greek church,” said Krumrine, whose office is in the downtown. “And I had a great lobster-and-scallop roll on the Square. At Yankee Homecoming, you see different offerings and I’ve had several great meals so far.”
