The 21st annual Whipple City Festival takes over the streets and parks of Greenwich this weekend with plenty of fun for the whole family. The two day fest kicks off at 6pm on Friday (June 14) with a “Friday Night at the Movies”-themed parade. Abraham Lincoln will serve as the grand marshall.

On Friday evening and all throughout the day on Saturday, the Whipple City Fest will offer lots of activities – laser tag, a 5K run, carnival games, an artisan market, Puddles the Clown, food & beverage vendors, horse & wagon rides, a ping pong tournament, caricaturist Phil Singer, a hula hoop contest and lots more.

And of course, the gazebo in Mowry Park will be hosting music, too. And it’s FREE…
