Guilford CT Fireworks! The 2011 Guilford Independence Day Fireworks will happen on Saturday July 9th, at 7:30pm (with a rain date of the following day, Sunday July 10th). Thanks to the efforts of some local residents and community sponsors, the Town of Guilford CT's annual Fireworks Show will happen this year. As we previously reported, the Town of Guilford cut the fireworks display from their budget earlier in the year. Due to a grassroots fund-raising effort, spearheaded by Guilford residents Adrian Price and Ed Bartlett, the $10,000 needed to fund this year's fireworks display were were raised. Check out the article on Zip06 about Adrian and Ed's efforts to make this event happen. I want to extend thanks to everyone who contributed funds to make the 2011 Fireworks Display happen. Cre...

I work with many clients who are relocating to Connecticut.  Today, while driving with a buyer from out of state, I was asked if Halloween was celebrated in Guilford CT during the Spring.   At first I was caught off guard by this question.... why would he ask today if we celebrated Halloween when it is May 1st? And then I saw this: Now his question made sense.  The Connecticut Renaissance Faire is in town this week!   The CT Renaissance Faire is one of many cultural events that take place in Downtown Guilford on the Guilford Fairgrounds.  Thousands attend each year from all parts of the country.  The “Renn Fair” as many call it, is a celebration of life and culture from the era of Shakespeare, Michelangelo and da Vinci.  The Faire brings us Meade (wine), stage performances, period art, ...

Guilford CT is a classic New England small town with a strong and vibrant community.  Much of this community is centered around regular annual events including the Independence Day Fireworks, the Christmas Tree Lighting and the Arts & Crafts Festival. Guilford CT recently cut the annual Independence Day Fireworks celebration from the 2011 budget.  The Guilford Parks and Recreation Commission and Guilford CT Board of Selectmen cut the Fireworks from the budget to avoid tax increases.  As a resident of Guilford, I'm a huge fan of the town fireworks and would hate to see this event canceled. The good news is that town residents, including Realtor® Adrian Price of Page Taft Real Estate, have spearheaded an effort to raise money to save the fireworks.  The New Haven Register recently covered...

Guilford Tree Lighting 2010   The cold temperatures last night sdidn't stop hundreds of people from attending the Guilford Tree Lighting on the Guilford Town Green.         It was a night full of activities and festivities.  There's nothing like a little bit of New England charm to get you in the holiday spirit .  The churches, shops, boutiques, and homes surrounding The Green were alive with bright sparkling lights and decorations. Many businesses remained opened during the event to the great delight of early arrivers providing food and drink and a wonderful opportunity to get some early shopping done.         Many of our associates and their families braved the cold and had great fun last night as we played Christmas music, giving out popcorn and hot apple cider to all of the passerby...
