Local community festivals have the potential to have many positive impacts on the region. This includes:
- A boost to the economy
- Bolstering relationships between individuals and local organizations
- Cultivating pride in the community
At the end of last month Downtown Milford put on some great activities for Halloween for kids. The Halloweekend Fall Festival. Parents were invited to bring their kids for some safe and monitored – but fun and spooky – Halloween event. Kids were offered ghoulish makeovers from students at Platt Tech High School, story time (that wasn’t too scary), Brian Smith DJ and lots more. And of course there were trick-or-treaters!
A couple of weeks later witnessed the first ever Hard Cider Festival in Wallingford, CT. Attendees were able to sample cider from more than a dozen local cideries, listen to live music, purchase local food from food trucks and partake in an apple cider doughnut-eating competition!
On November 2nd, performances were held at the University of Saint Joseph’s Autorino Center. The festival was held in order to celebrate the 5×5 Dance Festival’s diverse CT dance performers. This cultivates a unified climate for dance. As well, it provides both audiences and artists with knowledge of upcoming events.
So stay tuned for more upcoming local CT events.
