Ansonia celebrates 125th with old-fashioned fun

Ansonia Mayor David S. Cassetti dances Saturday night to lively Motown sounds performed by Connecticut-based swing/boogie band Eight to the Bar with City Treasurer and Cultural Commission Chairwoman Judy Nicolari.

ANSONIA - Whew, what a party!

I had a wonderful day Saturday at SummerFest celebrating Ansonia's 125th birthday with my husband, daughter, friends, and many residents of Ansonia and the Valley.

And I'd say everyone there had a great time as well.

Eight to the Bar rocks Ansonia's birthday party.

Before Eight to the Bar took the stage the mellow tones of the Rob Zappulla Band entertained with  timeless standards like "Fly Me To The Moon,""Luck Be A Lady Tonight," and "More Today Than Yesterday."

Plaudits go out to residents Greg Martin and Garry Giannone of Copper City Marketing who put the event together along with Ansonia Middle School teacher Lisa Nicolari and many volunteers who worked hard to make the day a big success!

Our mayor is a good dancer but I was able to keep uo! What a great band! The orchestra was also a big hit.
