Whipple City Days are coming!

The 34th annual Whipple City Days  event is a local tradition. This year I will be in Dorr Park (Main St & Cottage St) with (hopefully) a number of other groups representing local & regional history.

So, I thought I would share with you some memorabilia I have in my office.

Program from the 1985 Whipple City Days

Below you can see the entire program from the 2nd Whipple City Days June 24th- 28th, 1981. The parade, road race, craft fair, & music in Mowry park are still present all these years later. Also, the ever popular Greenwich Free Library Book Sale! (My personal favorite.)

What happened to the tennis tournament & the revolutionary War encampment? Oooo, & the bike race!

The Greater Greenwich Chamber of Commerce will put on a great event. Hope to see you there!
