The public is invited to see their democratic candidates for governor this weekend in New Bedford.

The City's Democratic Committee is sponsoring the gubernatorial forum at the Zeiterion Theater, with candidates Joe Avellone, Steven Grossman, Juliette Kayyem, Donald Berwick, and Martha Coakley.

Committee member Lisa Lemieux says it's important to note the event will not be a hot-blooded debate.

Each of the candidates will answer questions posed by a panel of moderators. WBSM will be broadcasting the forum live from 11am to 1pm from the Zeiterion Theater.

An outdoor marketplace will be hosted outside of the theater beginning at 9:30am.
