I love visiting SoNo and the Wall Street area of Norwalk. Not only are there amazing restaurants (Fat Cat Pie, Chocopologie, Match... just to name a few), but it's definitely a little grittier (in a good way) than most of Fairfield County and I love how every time I go there, I find something new to love. Visiting this revitalized area is exciting and it always makes me feel there's a piece of the big city life still within my reach. Go hang out in SoNo on a Saturday night and you'll see what I mean - there's some serious nightlife going on.
But there's plenty for the kiddies too...as you can see from this press release that I am sharing below, about the Norwalk Main/Wall Street Festival this Saturday, June 7th. It's a FREE event sponsored by the local business community. I can't make it but if you can attend, I'd love to hear from you next week about how it all turned out.
WHO: Over 80 Norwalk area merchants, businesses and non-profits will be exhibiting their goods and services during a day long festival celebrating the past, present and future of the historic downtown Wall Street community.
WHAT: A fun filled day with music, food and family-friendly activities. A stilt walker, a magician, balloon twister, a puppet show, face painting, tattoos for kids, ballet children’s fashion show and plant potting are just a few activities to keep the kids busy!
