25th Annual Hyperflite Skyhoundz Frisbee Dog Competition

by Harriman Real Estate on July 25, 2017

23rd Annual Hyperflite Skyhoundz Frisbee Dog CompetitionWhen I was a kid, we had a dog who loved to chase frisbees.

Notice I said “chase”, not “catch”.

If you threw the frisbee, Shep would run underneath it and watch it until it hit the ground, then he’d wait until it was finished bouncing, rolling, skidding or otherwise came to a full stop before he’d pick it up and bring it back to you, covered in doggy drool, and drop it at your feet, waiting for you to launch it into space again.

Those were the days…

Well, if you can relate to my Heinz 57 mutt and maybe have one yourself that actually catches the frisbee BEFORE it hits the ground, then this event just might be for you.

On Wednesday, July 26th from 6 – 8:30 PM, the Wallingford Department of Parks & Recreation will hold their Annual Hyperflite Skyhoundz Frisbee Dog Competition at Doolittle Park. Sponsored by Hyperflite, the premiere maker of doggie flying discs, this will be the 25th edition of this amazing competition to find the area’s best frisbee fetcher. At the first event in 1993 there were six competitors, but now this contest has grown to over fifty frisky entrants, and they can’t wait to see that first disc whizz into the air! Be sure to bring along a picnic lunch and watch all sorts of leaps, bounds and amazing catches by some talented animals. There will also be a baked potato truck there selling some tasty spuds!

To help beat the heat, there will be water pools available for the dogs to cool off in, and the competition rounds will be 60 seconds each and not back-to-back.

All dogs must be on a leash when not competing. Registration is open to anyone who is interested in seeing how their K-9 companion matches up against the best of the best, and Hyperflite will provide plaques to the top three finishers. In case of rain, the event will be held Thursday, July 27th.

By the way, my Shep would NOT have gotten a plaque…

Wallingford Community Pool Opening Soon

by Harriman Real Estate on May 13, 2017

Beat the heat this summer in the Wallingford Community Pool!

The days are getting longer, the kids will be out of school soon, and the temperatures are finally getting warmer and warmer. What better way to handle those three events than by taking a cooling dip in the community pool?

Wallingford’s Community Pool will open on June 17th until August 13th and will be open from 11am to 7pm each day.

Pool passes for adults are $20, $15 for youths between 13 and 17, and $10 for children 12 and under and also for seniors 63 and older. Also, non-residents can once again get pool passes this year. A Wallingford resident must sponsor a non-resident and accompany them to purchase a pass. There will be two forms of non-resident passes: a Two Week Pass that will be dated and cost $25.00 per person, and a Season Pass that will cost $50.00 per person. (There is a $20.00 replacement fee for all lost tags. Children 15 and under are required to have an adult present with them at the pool.)

Passes are now available and can be purchased at the Wallingford Parks and Recreation Department located at 6 Fairfield Boulevard. Their office hours are currently Monday through Sunday 9am to 9:45pm; beginning in June they will close at 5pm on Saturday and be closed on Sundays. Proof of residency – driver’s license, report card or school ID – is required. If you purchased a pass last year you can take it to the Parks and Rec office and they will put a 2017 sticker on it so you don’t have to have a new picture taken!

Don’t let the summer heat and humidity get you down this year, head down to the community pool and stay cool this summer!

When: June 17- August 13

Hours: Daily, 11am to 7pm

Where: Wallingford Community Pool, No. Main St. Ext.

Who: Everybody!

Cost: Residents – Adults, $20; Youths between 13 – 17, $15; Children 12 and under and seniors 63 and older, $10; Non-residents – 2 week pass, $25 per person, season pass, $50 per person

by Harriman Real Estate on May 1, 2017

If you’ve ever wondered what the food at some of Wallingford’s downtown restaurants is like, now is the time to find out! Wallingford Center, Inc. is sponsoring the 5th annual Wallingford Restaurant Hop on May 3rd from 4pm to 8pm. Bring the whole family and sample the specialties of some of the best eateries Wallingford has to offer (including two newcomers), enter the raffle and enjoy some good company, too! Here’s how it works: you purchase an entry “bracelet” for $25 ($12 for kids under 12) which will get you into each of the participating restaurants and allow you to sample selected items off their menu. You also receive a raffle ticket for the Grand Prize, which is a $25 gift card to each of the participating restaurants. Now that’s a LOT of food!

This event serves as a fundraiser for Wallingford Center, Inc in support of other programs, such as Celebrate Wallingford, The Farmer’s Market, and the Holiday Stroll.

Here’s the vital info:

Speaking from prior experience, I can vouch for the quality of food at all of these establishments, and I’m looking forward to getting out and trying them all again!

Everybody loves it when the carnival comes to town!

Once again, Wallingford’s Church of the Resurrection is sponsoring their annual carnival April 26th through the 29th in the parking lot adjacent to the church. The weather forecast for the four day event is mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of rain on Wednesday, partly cloudy on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with temps ranging from 67 to 77 degrees. But regardless of the weather, everyone will enjoy the fun, games, rides and great food that always accompanies this much anticipated first carnival of the season!

The venue will open nightly at 6pm and features a midway with more things to do than you can shake a stick at! Some of the fun to be had includes games of skill, chance and just plain old luck (NOTE: must be 18 years or older to play games of chance), rides for young and old including a Ferris wheel, roller coaster, and a Fun House.

Let's take a walk through the Fun House!

The first two days are themed as Italian Night on Wednesday, and Polish Night on Thursday, complete with music. Some of the ethnic treats that will be offered are:

Italian Night

  • Porchetta
  • Homestyle Cannoli

There will be plenty to satisfy your sweet tooth, too, with delights such as ice cream, carrot cake and canolli to be had. And of course, the obligatory refreshments will also be available in the form of coffee, iced tea, soda, water, beer, wine, lemonade and hot chocolate.

Last but not least, there will be raffles big and small, and plenty of games and rides for kids of all ages, with a $20 wristband for rides available each night.

Church of the Resurrection, 115 Pond Hill Rd, Wallingford CT 06492

There’s always something to do at this fun-filled extravaganza; we’ve gone every year and we never fail to have a great time and we NEVER leave hungry! So if you’re looking for something to do April 26th – 29th, look no further than the Church of the Resurrection Carnival, 115 Pond Hill Road in Wallingford.
