NEW HARTFORD — For the first time in over a year, the town held its New Hartford Day celebration at Brodie Park on Saturday, Sept. 18.
The event included local organizations including New Hartford Boy Scouts Troop 19, The Beekley Community Library, representatives from the local Democratic and Republican parties, along with family games including a bounce house, face paintings, a cornhole tournament, and performances by local bands Apricot Brandy and the Tradesmen.
The event started with a performance by The Northwestern Regional #7 marching band for an audience of over 100 residents.
“This is a great tradition for the town of New Hartford,” First Selectman Daniel Jerram said. “It’s all about getting together with your neighbors and seeing people together with their family and friends. After a year off, it’s great to see people back together. New Hartford residents are all great because they are outdoor-loving, fun-loving people.”
“We all love the community,” real estate agent Suzie Larson from Turning Point Realty said. “We love seeing everybody getting together and enjoying each other’s company. What makes the New Hartford community unique is that we are all very tight-knit.”
“Having this event is a great way to celebrate how awesome this town is,” Dream, Believe, Achieve, Dance studio owner Carissa Monroe said.
