Established to walk the sidewalks of downtown Danbury, CT, DisH Liv(ing) Walking Tours has expanded to take a peek at its neighboring downtown community of Bethel. On Saturday August 19th, 11:00am to 1:00pm, host Ted Killmer, a downtown Danbury resident, will introduce walkers to a Bethel book store that specializes in all things Connecticut, artisanal makers of 3D chocolates, a mural that celebrates the town’s famed P.T. Barnum’s Jumbo, a fascinating story about a doughboy that became a lamp, a circus school that really sparks, and more.
DisH Liv(ing) Walking Tours is supported, in part, by the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut in partnership with the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts. In addition, the Walks also receive support by the the more-than-generous participation of eateries, shops, businesses, and local folk who line the day’s Walk.
“I’m so delighted to take on a new Downtown, to uncover it, and revel in it,” says Ted. He suggests that you wear comfortable shoes, bring your camera, and a few friends. “Its about the conversations we have as we walk, not the Walk itself.”
The Walk is FREE, though tips are welcomed. As much as possible, stops are wheelchair accessible, family friendly, and do not require difficult climbs. To participate, reservations are required. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, the number in your party, and a phone contact, or call (475) 289 3113. A confirmation will let you know where to meet. The itinerary remains, appropriately, to be discovered.
