Litchfield: Pet Parade and Turn-of-the-Century Fest

Description: Celebrate Independence Day with the Litchfield Historical Society’s annual Pet Parade and Turn-of-the-Century Festival. Community members, with or without pets, are invited to participate.

The town ceremony ends with firing a cannon 13 times beginning at 2 p.m. Pets should arrive no earlier than 2:15p.m. to register for the parade and be eligible for awards. After the parade, enjoy ice cream and old-fashioned lawn games. 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. 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 or town license.

Registration begins at 2:15 pm and the celebration kicks off at 2:30 pm. To register, call (860) 567-4501 or email registration@litchfieldhistoricalsociety.org.
