The Litchfield Historical Society will hold its annual Pet Parade and Turn-of-the-Century Fest on Thursday, July 4th. Residents and visitors alike with or without pets are invited to participate or to observe. Pets of any kind are welcome, but all pets must be either on a leash or in a cage and, where applicable, must come with a rabies certificate.
To register for the parade, call the Historical Society at (860) 567-4501 by Friday, June 29.
The Turn-of-the-Century-Fest will also include an ice cream social, with ice cream generously donated by Peaches and Cream, and old-fashioned games. Fest participants will have the opportunity to compete in egg and spoon races, a tug of war, a sunflower seed spitting contest, and three-legged races.
The event is free and open to the public. Also, admission is free of charge on July 4 to both the Litchfield History Museum and the Tapping Reeve House & Law School.
