Something very special is happening at dusk in the charming town of Torrington located in the heart of the Litchfield Hills. The spirit of Halloween is alive and well here on Friday, October 30, and Saturday, October 31 beginning at dusk.
This year the Main Street in downtown Torrington will be a-glow with one hundred jack-o-lanterns that line both sides of the street. It will be a magical experience to see how these jack-o-lanterns flicker and glow from shop windows. The “parade” of jack-o-lanterns begins at the St John Paul Academy and continues to the Torrington Library. Along the way, visitors can admire a multitude of creative pumpkin carvings and vote for their favorites. To add to the festivities, kids are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes.
If you work up an appetite while strolling, no worries, there will be plenty of food trucks around that offer a variety of refreshments. Food trucks include Batchy Brew, Mi Amor Eats, Singing Sliders, and Pete’s Ice Cream truck.
