I’ve done posts like this before. They are responses to those who say that there isn’t anything to do in New Haven. Because of my role as a State Senator I am at a lot of events that are free and fun in and around the city and my camera goes with me to document just how untrue this is.
This is only a small portion of what was happening this past weekend:
|Staff and community listen in as Lincoln Bassett’s New Principal delivers a new vision for the school before the Party With A Purpose|
|I wasn’t the only photographer present|
|Maybe my memory is short but I don’t remember my teachers doing anything like the wobble.|
|On Friday evening in Scantlebury Park Alder Morrison, State Rep Porter and members of the community listen to free live music.|
|Free music and dancing go together perfectly|
|The singing was on point|
|On Saturday just beyond the New Haven line in a park in Newhallville free fun was available in the form of music, cotton candy, bouncy houses and pizza.|
|Also on Saturday on Lilac Street a huge back to school community event took place. Here event coordinator Tammy Chapman attends to details.|
|I think that book bag is about as big as he is|
|The DJs paused so that these two could demonstrate their freestyle ability|
|The Wobble. Its presence has become ubiquitous|
There was more but this photographer also shot a wedding so my camera and I needed some rest. Keep an eye open there is always plenty to do in and around the city.
