A Pet Parade to celebrate the fourth in Litchfield Hills

The Litchfield History Museum located in the heart of this bucolic village is celebrating July 4th  with a Pet Parade and Turn-of-the-Century Fest! 

This is your chance to show off your favorite pet and to celebrate Independence Day at the Litchfield Historical Society's annual Pet Parade and Turn-of-the-Century Festival on Monday, July 4th from 2:15 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Visitors are welcome to join the festivities with or without pets.
After the parade, enjoy ice cream, donated by Peaches N' Cream, at Turn-of-the-Century Fest and then try your skills at old-fashioned lawn games  on the Green. 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. 

Better yet, this event is free and open to the public. 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.
Registration begins at 2:15 pm and the celebration kicks off at 2:30 pm. For more information or to register, please call us at (860) 567-4501 or email
