Niantic, Conn. (July 8, 2014) – Niantic is stepping up to defend its title of Connecticut’s still revolutionary Fan-Favorite Town with a new video and original song.
Produced by Niantic Main Street, the video features local singer/songwriter Kelly Eberle traveling to 40 Niantic businesses and attractions while singing “Niantic – It’s the Town for Me,” an original song written by Eberle with her sister Kate Eberle. The song was produced by Collin Pastore.
Mobilizing the village’s passionate residents and visitors, last year Niantic became the first Fan-Favorite still revolutionary Town of the Year, earning more votes than any other town, village, city or borough across the state. A feat that Niantic Main Street – Niantic’s downtown revitalization organization – wants to repeat.
“The people of Niantic have a genuine love for this village and their community,” said Niantic Main Street President Dan Walsh. “We’re aiming for two years in a row!”
The socially-driven Connecticut still revolutionary Fan-Favorite Town program calls for people to vote for the town that they think most embodies the spirit of the state’s brand, Connecticut still revolutionary — a haven for original ideas and innovation that offers a dynamic blend of experiences. Participants will also have the opportunity to vote for their favorite business, destination or attraction within that town.
The winning town and destination will receive bragging rights for all of 2014 along with promotional support from Connecticut’s Office of Tourism. For each vote cast, residents and visitors will be entered to win a ZIP to ZEN getaway to Niantic, the 2013 Connecticut still revolutionary Fan-Favorite Town of the Year.

Towns and destinations with the most votes will be announced on a weekly basis. Participants are encouraged to vote every day on the Visit Connecticut Facebook page (www.facebook.com/visitconnecticut) through July 25. Each vote counts as a chance to win the ZIP to ZEN getaway to Niantic, which will offer the grand-prize winner the opportunity to find their ZEN with a four-night stay at the Inn at Harbor Hill Marina, a $100 gift card to Grace boutique, as well as time to ZIP around courtesy Niantic Bay Bicycles.
