Festival Fever: Wilton Community Day Parkfest, 7/10/10


ParkFestWow, this sounds like a wonderful small-town summer celebration straight out of “Our Town” – and we really mean that in the best possible way.

The Wilton Community Day ParkFest in Gavin Park in Wilton on Saturday, July 10. The festivities are scheduled to run from 11am til 9:30pm, and here’s just a bit of what’s on tap for you:

A blueberry pie baking contest
An ice cream eating contest
Free pony rides
A baseball tournament
Amusement rides
Racing pigs
A sidewalk art exhibit
Classic car show
The Ashville Exotic Zoo
Craft fair
Bike rodeo
Magician Robert Austin
Chainsaw carving demonstrations
Caricature artist

Of course there will be music, too. Performers include 12-year-old Elvis tribute artist Matthew Boyce (1pm), the Bluz House Rockers (4:45pm) and the Electric City Horns (6:15 & 7:45pm).

And then cap off the whole day with some fireworks, of course. Best of all, it’s almost all free (The amusement rides are $1, although you can buy a $6 wristband for unlimited rides.)
