The Daffodil Festival

So this weekend is the Meriden Daffodil Festival. It's a huge event in Hubbard Park. Food, art, a parade, and all kinds of outdoor fun are guaranteed to take place. It's also going to be about 80 degrees, so it's totally worth going just for some good ol' sunshine.

Anyway, the best part about the whole thing is that there's going to be music playing continuously throughout Saturday and Sunday on 3 stages around the park!!! So stop by and check out some tunes! For a full schedule and a short synopsis about each band, click here. There's some big names on here - Bear Hands, The Mountain Movers, MT Bearington, titles and Lo-Fi Radio Stars to name a few! Needless to say it's going to be excellent outdoor fun.

Hubbard Park is right off of I-691 in Meriden. If you haven't been there before, it's a really cool park, and there's a really awesome castle tower on premises. Sadly, it looks like Mark Mulcahy won't be making an appearance this year... If you happen to read this, I hope everything's ok, Mark!
