Scouts Host Activities
Wolcott’s Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will be hosting a variety of fun activities for elementary and middle school aged children from 1- 3 pm today at Peterson Park. The fun day is free.

Have you had your fritters yet? While Southington’s Apple Harvest Festival wraps up today from noon – 5 pm on the Southington Green, the world-famous Fritter Booth, cooked up by the Zion Lutheran Church will be open until 6 pm. The free street fair features plenty of apple related food made by local community organizations and venders. The Southington Elks host a beer garden and rock music at their club headquarters adjacent to the green. On the main festival stage, a Southington Idol competition will be held from 1 -2 pm and the band Wing It will close out the day from 2:30- 4 pm. Many local restaurants will feature outdoor seating to visitors and area streets will be closed. There is plenty of free parking and toilet facilities for this annual tradition.

Do you like Garlic? Sure you do, and the 7th Annual Garlic and Harvest Festival continues at the Bethlehem Fairgrounds from 10 – 5 pm. Sample a variety of garlic products from garlic dips to cheeses. All venders will have garlic on the menu of course, from garlic marinated sausage and peppers or steak sandwiches to deep-fried garlic. For those less adventuristic in the food category, sessions on how to grow garlic and ways to cook herbs to a bee keeping demonstration will be held throughout the day. Admission is $6 adults, $5 for seniors and $1 for children under 12.
