Ansonia Cultural Commission to host Harvest Festival

Annual event slated Oct. 4


ANSONIA - It may still be summer, but plans are already in the works for the 11th Annual Harvest Festival to be held from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Oct. 4 along Main Street. Rain date is Oct. 11.

The Cultural Commission and the city are coordinating the event.

There will be new entertainment on two separate stages, and music will appeal to all age groups, said Cultural Commission Chairperson Judy Nicolari.

Other added features will be on various corners, featuring Mary Poppins and other characters, local magician  Brian Lizotte with tricks and balloon designs, and strolling musicians.

The Roaming Railroad will ride up and down Main Street all day offering rides at $3 per person.
Inflatable rides will also be featured along with many new vendors, new bands, dancers, and more.
There will be a variety of food booths, and city restaurants will be open throughout the day and evening.

A Polish band will entertain from noon-2 p.m. in the upper Main Street parking lot, so get ready to  polka. This band is new to the festival and is sure to be a lot of fun!

There also will be an antique and classic car show, as in previous years.

A schedule of all the events will be posted on the city's website, www.cityofansonia.com by mid-September.
Vendors are needed to completely fill Main Street and the applications can be found on the city's web site.
The price is $50 if paid by Sept. 15; $65 after that date.

This festival is being held in conjunction with the City of Ansonia's 125th celebration.
Questions? Call Judy Nicolari, 203-231-3603.

The Cultural Commission hopes to 'SEE YOU ON MAIN STREET.'
