Task 38 - SailFest 2012

(38) Visit 10 Festivals of Fairs (07/20)

Festival: SailFest 2012Location: New London,CT
When: July 6 - 8, 2012Rating: 4-Stars

Sailfest is a 3 day festival in Southeastern Connecticut. It includes amusement rides, lots of free entertainment, Tall Ships and of course the Annual Fireworks. This year the Fireworks are presented by Garden State Fireworks and are sponsored by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe and Foxwoods Casino.

They are held the Saturday after the 4th of July. Every year since I was a kid I have gone and watched these fireworks. We have tried a variety of viewing locations from the railroad tracks to Fort Trumbull. This year we modified our routine and rather then sitting on top of the hill where we would miss most of the ground fireworks we sat down at the bottom with a better view of the barges.

The fireworks are also usually put on by Grucci Brothers but Garden State Fireworks didn't dissappoint and with out having ready the program I wouldn't have known it wasn't Grucci.
