There's Nothing More Graceful than Swans on a Lake Hanover Lake is in the South Meriden CT area. As I was driving back from a showing, I noticed large white objects just bobbing along on the lake''s surface. I stopped at a light and it allowed me time to get a closer look. I stopped at the edge of the lake, and there were cars of people throwing food out for the birds, and no signs requesting that they not do so, so the birds were not native to the lake, but having shelter and food, see no reason to leave. There were also some mallards enjoying the free lunch as well. The swans just swam along with no visible effort. Occasionally they would dive over to catch something that must have looked tasty. Graceful, striking for their all white color and contrasting black mask and orange bill, t...

Meriden's Hubbard Park Hosts 35th Annual Daffodil Festival Over 600,000 daffodils. Over 100,000 attendees. Two days. One stupendous event! The 35th Annual Meriden Daffodil Festival in Hubbard Park is almost here and promises to be bigger and better than ever, with over 35 musical acts scheduled to perform this year and plenty of food, games, rides and activities on hand for everyone. The two day event kicks off on Saturday, April 27th and ends on Sunday, April 28th, but the amusement rides and food stations will be open starting at 5:00 PM on Friday, the 26th. Last year the abnormally warm weather caused the thousands of daffodils in the park to bloom early, but that doesn't seem to be the case this year, and they should be in full bloom for the festival. The main event kicks off at 10:...

I have lived in Connecticut for over 33 years, but before last night I had not been to see the Christmas Lights In Hubbard Park, Meriden, Connecticut, but I am glad that I finally did. The trafic to see the Christmas Lights In Hubbard Park, Meriden, Connecticut was bumper to bumper for about a mile, but it was well worth the wait. The City of Meriden did an excellent job in the layout of the lights, and the look on the face of the kids that were walking around in awe of all the lights was worth the trip all on its own.  Hubbard Park is located off of West Main Street in Meriden just before Cheshire, Ct. so it is very easy to get to from either Meriden or Cheshire. I did my best to try to capture the Christmas Lights In Hubbard Park, Meriden, Connecticut but my camera does not do very w...
