This weekend marks the annual celebration of all things related to romance and love with the observance of Valentine's Day. According to local celebrity David Fenn, Willimantic has been dubbed "Romantic Willimantic" by the people who, well...rhyme.
Seriously though, Willimantic is the host of the annual Chocolate Festival each year on the weekend closest to Valentine's Day. The festival is always quite indulgent with many opportunities to sample various chocolate items at participating vendors around town. To see the festival flier, go to www.romanticwillimantic.org
What does this have to do with the fire department? We'll be hosting a bouncy castle tomorrow, from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM, during the Downtown Chocolate Chip Stroll. Bring the kids/grandkids by and visit the firefighters!
