South Norwalk Splash Festival - June 6th, 2004

The South Norwalk Splash Festival is a great family event held in South Norwalk. The event includes a chinese dragon boat parade, a chowder cook-off, special dancing performances, and much more.

A good portion of the event in held right outside the SONO Switch Tower Museum on
Washington Street.

Here are some photos of this years event, taken by our volunteer Bob Gambling.

Click on the photos to enlarge. Full size photos are very large, about 1MB, and will take an extremely long time to load with a dial-up internet connection.
We will soon make the enlargements have smaller file sizes.
