Please join our group, "Paw Park at Viney Hill Brook Park" ! We need more visitors to this park. This group was created to bring attention, awareness, and directions to the locals! This park has a lot to offer and we’d like to remind everyone of that!

Dog park trips offer dog parents and their pets a great opportunity to bond, socialize, and run off some pent-up energy, but with all that fun comes responsibility. Dog park rules and regulations are there to ensure the safety and fun of all its visitors. No matter what type of dog park you go to, knowing and following its rules will help keep you and your dog safe.
Paddle boaters: Here is an important link to get your free paddle craft ID stickers from the DEEP. It could help return your wayward boat to you or even save your life! Old Saybrook FD recently spent many hours searching for potentially missing boaters when unmanned and unidentified kayaks were found floating in the sound. I have also found empty canoes floating by my backyard on the Falls River. I just received my stickers in the mail. :-)

2018 Essex Memorial Day Parade
Monday, May 28th
Memorial Day offers an opportunity to reflect on our freedoms and honor those that have given their lives in defending those freedoms. In recognition of these fallen heroes, the Essex Memorial Day Parade will provide a reverent celebration winding through the streets of Essex. The parade will commence on Memorial Day, May 28, 2018 @ 9AM. All veterans are welcome; wear your uniform of choice or collared shirt/slacks and join your fellow warriors. Assemble at the Foot of Main Street in downtown Essex at 8:45AM. This year’s Grand Marshall will be Walt Budney.
The parade will follow a three-mile route as it makes the following stops to pay respects: Riverview Cemetery, First Baptist Church, Town Hall, Centerbrook Cemetery, and the Essex Veterans Memorial Hall. There will be a short ceremony at Essex Veterans Memorial Hall at the conclusion of the parade (approx. 11:15AM) followed by complimentary food items and an Open House.
If weather precludes a parade, ceremonies will be held at Essex Town Hall at 9:30AM and Essex Veterans Memorial Hall at 11:00AM followed by complimentary food items and an Open House. All interested marching parties or those that may need transportation please contact Alex Breen @ 609.805.7146.

Ivoryton Village Pumpkin Festival

IVORYTON VILLAGE PUMPKIN FESTIVAL COSTUME PARADE – MARCHERS INSTRUCTIONS 10.22.2022 – STEP OFF 4PM

I can’t begin to tell you all how excited I am to the response we received to participate in our inaugural Pumpkin Festival Costume Parade! We are hopeful that Saturdays weather cooperates and know that a light rain will not dampen our activities or plans for the 2022 Ivoryton Village Pumpkin Festival.

So what our marchers need to know.

We will meet at the Corner of Main Street and Walnut Street in Ivoryton at 3:45 – step off will be precisely at 4pm. Please do not park along Main Street – I would suggest parking on the south side of Ivory Street prior to the parade and walking to the meeting location. Parking will be allowed along Ivory Street but not along Main from Ivory Street to Walnut. Also Summit will be closed at 3pm with the village Center to Walnut closed to threw traffic starting at 3:45 until 7pm.

This is a hometown parade with no real unit assignments. I will give you a hint of the premise – think the Pied Piper of Ivoryton as the Theme for the parade so it will simply be follow the leader. Strollers and wagons are welcome. We ask that you refrain from bicycling. We has over 100 registered marchers so we feel for the safety and well being of everyone no bikes or motorized vehicle will be permitted

The route will be simply and short. The parade will be lead to the Ivoryton Village green and enter on the south side of the parking lot. (think entrance closest to North Main) parade goers will be lead into the Green for a little bit of Hocus Pocus to kick off the festivities. ALL children must be accompanied by an adult and EVERYONE and yes that means you parents are encouraged to wear a costume.

All those registered to participate are eligible to receive a special token of our appreciation - Our “SWAG” bags will be available to pick up after the parade at our Park and Recreation Snack Station which is located in from of the SIX SUMMIT ART GALLERY. We will have staff on site to hand them out. Pick up is from 4:30-6pm – we cannot honor any other pick up requests other than the day and time as indicated so don’t forget to grab your child’s SWAG

Can’t wait to celebrate the 2022 Ivoryton Village Pumpkin Festival with all of you. PS Don’t forget to visit us at the Bushy Hill Nature Center for pumpkin carving from 10-12 we have 100 pumpkins to carve as supplies last.

For any other specifics please contact me directly. I encourage everyone to follow our Ivoryton Village Pumpkin Festival Face Book page – here is the link https://www.facebook.com/IvorytonVillagePumpkinFestival/
