Say it isn't so! No more holiday Festival of Lights on Constitution Plaza? This from the mayor's office. Somehow I just don't think it will be the same...
"A beloved 47-year-old holiday tradition in the City of Hartford is getting reinvigorated thanks to a strengthened public-private partnership. The Hartford Festival of Light® is moving to historic Bushnell Park from Constitution Plaza in order to add a new interactive family feature--- an outdoor skating rink.
The more centrally located venue for the event will make it more accessible to the Theatre and entertainment district and restaurants. Again, the date of the extravaganza is still the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, November 26."
Time and details of the pageantry and procession to the park will be unveiled as we get closer to the arrival of the holiday season.
