Happy 4th of JulyThe mercury is rising and the colors of Old Glory wave all across Connecticut, where it can seem especially fun to celebrate independence with reminders of history all around us. Residents of our properties have access to a smorgasbord of Fourth of July in walking distance or short drives from home. We’ve pulled together a list of some of the ways to mark the occasion with your neighbors.

Stamford will host a free fireworks show on Friday, June 30 at 6 p.m. in Cummings Park. Entertainment begins at 6:00 pm and the fireworks will start after dark. Bring a picnic and a blanket, find your spot and enjoy a relaxing summer evening. Guests are reminded that parking restrictions will be in place, and that traffic after the show may be congested. Cummings Park makes a scenic spot for a picnic and fireworks display. Enjoy fishing, swimming or boating and then cuddle up to watch the rockets red glare bursting over Long Island Sound. (more…)
