Fair Haven Celebrates Opening Of Urban Trails

At Quinnipiac River Park in Fair Haven, Orquesta Espada was heading into the last song of its set. The Caseus truck had run out of supplies to make sandwiches and was packing it in, while the ¡Ay Arepa! truck was still going strong. Chatham Square resident and community organizer Lee Cruz ran back and forth through the crowd of hundreds, from the stage to make announcements to the registration table, where families were still coming. And along Front Street bordering the park, the sharp-eyed could detect a string of new badges fixed to some of the street signs — a string that loops 5.8 miles through Fair Haven in a system of urban trails representing the culmination of a long, community-driven effort...;

Note: Just to be clear, the Fair Haven Family Stroll and Festival is in its 6th year. It is an event that is organized by the Friends Center for Children and Elm City Montessori (parents, staff and other volunteers). The FHFS and festival supports quality early childhood education in our community. The FHFS and festival has always included the 1.5 mile walk. It only made sense to inaugurate the Fair Haven trails with this well-established event that encourages a broad cross section of our community to walk. I was privileged to serve as the MC for this great annual event.
