“There are so many volunteers that have come forward to help,” said Town Councilman and Festival Committee member Chris Palmieri. “It truly is a community-wide event and it take a year of planning to make this happen.”
Southington’s Apple Harvest Festival will include all of the classics from years past – fireworks on Saturday, the annual parade and road race on Sunday, fritters (my favorite), Connecticut Icon and other contests – so do you have the information to make the best of your day?
