4th Annual Wallingford Restaurant Hop

by Harriman Real Estate on April 27, 2016

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 4th annual Wallingford Restaurant Hop on May 4th from 4pm to 9pm. 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 ($10 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:

4th Annual Wallingford Restaurant HopWhen: Wednesday, May 4, 2016

Hours: 4 PM – 9PM

Where: Downtown Wallingford CT

Tickets: $25, $10 kids under 12 (only 300 tickets will be sold!)

Who to Contact: Wallingford Center, Inc, (203) 284-1807 or email lizlandow@wallingfordcenterinc.com

Tickets can also be purchased at these local businesses:

  • HUBCAP Wallingford

And here’s a list of participating restaurants:

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! If you’re looking for a break from the kitchen and you can’t decide where to go, this is a great way to get out of the house, try some food you might not have tried before and support local Wallingford businesses. As a wise man once said, “Good bread, good meat, good God, let’s eat!”.

See you at the Hop!

Church of the Resurrection Carnival 2016

Everybody loves it when the carnival comes to town!

Once again, Wallingford’s Church of the Resurrection is sponsoring their annual carnival April 27th through the 30th in the parking lot adjacent to the church. The weather forecast for the four day event is for rain on Wednesday morning followed by bright sunshine in the afternoon, partly cloudy on Thursday, mostly sunny on Friday, and mostly cloudy for Saturday, with temps ranging from 61 to 70 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 ol’ 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:

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.

As for musical entertainment, the a capella group Fermata the Blue from CCSU will perform at 7pm and 8pm on Friday night. 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.

Keep Our Independence Day Fireworks Alive

by Harriman Real Estate on April 18, 2016

For as long as I’ve lived in Wallingford, and for many years prior to my arrival, the town has marked the Independence Day holiday with a spectacular fireworks display that draws thousands, residents and non-residents alike. In 2009, the town stopped funding the fireworks but found funds for them from savings on a town insurance policy. Beginning the following year, however, funding for the annual event was again eliminated from the town budget, this time for good. Thanks to the heroic efforts of Jason Zandri and a group of volunteers, funds were raised from private sources to ensure that the holiday spectacle would continue. They have successfully raised the funds each year, allowing the citizenry to enjoy a long-standing family tradition of coming together in civic pride and community spirit. Now, however, that too has come to an end.

This year, the volunteer group has decided that the responsibility for the fireworks display should once again be taken up by the town, as it has been for so many years in the past. To assist them in convincing the Mayor and Town Council to find a place for the fireworks in the budget, I have created an online petition to try to get as many signatures as possible in support of the town resuming funding of the fireworks display. The petition has been live for about 2 weeks now and has garnered over 800 signatures as of this writing.

Fireworks displays have become almost as synonymous with America as baseball and apple pie; they bring communities together in the spirit of patriotism and pride, and remind us of how far we’ve come in two and a half centuries. They also provide a vehicle for teaching our children about history and freedom, and to never take it for granted. If our tradition of celebrating the birth of our great nation was to be stripped from us, we are all diminished by it. John Adams, delegate from Massachusetts to the Second Continental Congress, wrote home to his wife Abigail that future generations would celebrate July 2, the date the Congress voted to approve Richard Henry Lee’s resolution declaring independence from Britain for 13 of the British colonies in America. He said:

Independence Day Fireworks

While history has moved the importance of the event to the fourth of July instead of the second, Adams’ sentiment is no less valid.

If you would like to support us in our mission to save the Wallingford Fireworks, please feel free to sign the petition. You can access it by clicking on the image below, or by clicking this link:

Save the Wallingford Fireworks | Online Petition

Independence Day fireworks

Thank you, and God bless America!

Art Open House for Alyssa Davison

by Harriman Real Estate on April 15, 2016

Alyssa Davison Art Open House

Once again it is our pleasure to feature the work of another local artist on our “Wallingford Inspires…” art wall, Alyssa Davison. Alyssa is a life-long Wallingford resident and a high school student in the Wallingford Education Enhancement Program. Alyssa’s art is as unique and bold as she is, and she creates it in a rather unorthodox way.

“Digital art is my favorite medium, and I create all my art on an iPhone app called Medibang Paint,” she says. “My work is an extension of my emotions, or a scene I daydreamed while listening to music. Each new piece I do adds to my skills to be used in future work.” We’d say her skills are doing just fine.

As we do with all our artists, we are holding an art open house for Alyssa so everyone can see her beautiful artwork. Read on for details…

When: Friday, April 22nd 2016

Hours: 5:00PM to 7:00PM

Where: Harriman Real Estate LLC office, 116 Center Street, Wallingford

Who’s Invited: Everyone!

Who to contact: Pat Harriman, 203-605-3873

We hope you will join us at Harriman Real Estate, LLC to enjoy the original creations of Alyssa Davison. She will be there to greet her guests, and light refreshments will be provided. Below are examples of just two of her work.
