the hartford festival of lights starts today

it's moving to bushnell park this year. i personally think that's a LOT better than constitution plaza. we'll see though 
so if you're in the hood at about 5 pm, why don't you join in on the festivities? walk along with the pack from the former home, the plaza, to the new home, bushnell park! 

Festival Of Light Starts Friday At Bushnell Park
The Hartford Courant

HARTFORD In a new twist on an old tradition, the Festival of Light will open Friday at Constitution Plaza, but will migrate across town to Bushnell Park, where visitors can see the giant Christmas tree and sip free hot chocolate.
Starting at 5 p.m., Mayor Pedro Segarra, cast members of the Hartford Stage Company's "A Christmas Carol," and Sonar, the Wolf Pack's mascot, will lead a procession from Constitution Plaza to Bushnell Park, passing through State House Square on the way.
During the march, they will be joined by Pucky, a mascot for the Connecticut Whale, and Santa, who will be riding a Zamboni ice-grooming machine. The public is invited to walk with the group or cheer them on along the route, which includes Asylum and Trumbull streets...........
