Sail down to New London
June 28, 2012 by James
The New London community will be the site of much celebration, as well as plenty of entertainment and activity this summer. As usual, however, Sailfest, a premier event for Southeastern Connecticut, will be a highlight of the season. The event usually attracts over 300,000 guests, as it takes place over the course of three days, and it comprises a variety of attractions.
This year Sailfest will take place from July 6 – 8 in its usual location of the historical New London Waterfront city. For the music lovers, throughout the three-day event there will be live performances on three different stages, featuring groups that cover various genres of music, such as rock, drumming, world, American contemporary, soul, pop, rock, hip-hop, blues, and Americana.
Working in tandem with Sailfest to create a venue for artists to display their works, there will be a Hygeinic Art festival in which the artists and crafters may sell their wares on site. They may also reap promotional benefits by investing in flyer printing and business card printing to promote their work further.
There will be plenty for everyone to see and do. For the athletic, there will be a 5k run, while for the kids, there will be amusement park rides, over 150 vendors, and everyone is invited to experience the Tall Eagle Ship. Each day there will be stacks of food and beverages for purchase from food and beer stands.
Highlighting the event will be a spectacular fireworks display, beginning at 9:00 pm on Saturday, July 7.
