A full schedule of musical events, food, vendors, children’s activities, en plein air artists, flash dancing and more.
Two walks will take place. At 11 a.m. Glenn Dreyer, director of Connecticut College’s Arboretum, will identify with participants the native species in the park. At 1 p.m. there will be a walk led by University of Connecticut’s Landscape Architects Peter Miniutti and Madeline Schad, who will listen to walkers’ suggestions for new ideas and changes in the park.
