Mill River Park groundbreaking in Stamford, CT – Oct. 15 with pumpkin carving, fun, and Fairgate Farms harvest celebration

28 Sep

Stamfordites and Stamford lovers, the time has come.  The long awaited groundbreaking of Mill River Park is upon us!  This park is set to revitalize Downtown Stamford and will be our own version of Central Park.  Are there plans, though, to open up a Central Perk nearby?  Rachel needs a new job, I’ve heard.  Anywho, look at what they have planned for it:  playgrounds, an amphitheater, kayaking, a basketball court, cherry tree grove, a carousel, a fountain, a 9/11 memorial, an ice skating rink, and the great lawn.

So, come down to see what’s been done as part of Phase 1.  The fun begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 15 and goes on until 1.

• It’s in Mill River Park (duh), so enter on Mill River Street.  Parking is available at the Hampton Inn garage and Sacred Heart Church parking lot.

• Fairgate Farms from Fairfield, CT harvest festival!  YES!  Hope that involves cider and cider donuts.  ;)

Special guest speakers such as Governor Malloy, Senators Blumenthal and Lieberman, Rep. Jim Himes, and Stamford Mayor Michael Pavia.

Fun and action for family and young at!

Pumpkin decorating and carving contest.  I won’t win, my pumpkin faces always look demented.

Come out, have fun, carve, and celebrate…thanks to all involved, especially the Mill River Collaborative.
