The countdown is on for Groton’s Fourth Fall Festival. It’s time to mark your calendar and save the important date of Saturday, October 10. This is a special community event created and sponsored by the Groton Business Association (GBA) of the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce.
Groton’s Fall Festival runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is a rain or shine event. You can obtain full information by going to the GBA website at www.grotonbiz.com or calling the Chamber at 860.572.9578. The deadline for registering is Friday, September 25.
For businesses, artists and crafters, it is an opportunity to connect with your current customers and attract new ones. For non-profit organizations it is an opportunity to promote your message to thousands in person.
The primary site is Poquonnock Plains Park, centrally located in the middle of Groton. This will be the site of an Arts and Crafts Show, business displays, exhibits and food vendors. Other sites for the Festival are Sutton Park, the location for skate board contests, and the Ella T. Grasso Southeastern Technical High School, the location for the car show.
New this year is radio controlled airplane demonstrations throughout the day. RC Propbusters, a radio controlled model airplane club, is providing the aerial demonstrations. Back for another year, the Blackhawk helicopter from AVCRAD will be on display.
