– Rain or Shine -No Fee –
Join us on Saturday, September 9 at 12 pm as we start our first parade to Celebrate the Sea in a new way. This year we will be incorporating the MARITIME FOLKLORE OF CONNECTICUT into our festival. Did you know that both sea serpents and mermaids were reported sighted in Long Island Sound at Lordship Point, Stratford as late as the 1800’s and early 1900’s. We are going to celebrate the folklore with marching bands, dancers, floats and lots of mermaids and sea monsters! There is a form below for those who wish to be in the parade. Even if you are walking we would like to have you sign up so you know where to line up! It promises to be a great time ! Viewing will be best along Bank and Tilley Streets!
