The SoNo Corporate Center will host a free kids' concert and parade on Thursday, Oct. 25, from 6 to 8 p.m. at SONO Park, 50 Washington St., Norwalk, featuring Rubberband of Star Inc. lighting the way. Rubberband will perform fun, kid friendly dance music.
The theme of the event is El Dia De Los Muertos. El Dia De Los Muertos is a Mexican holiday celebrated around the world to remember friends and family members who have died.
Children are invited to wear masks and costumes and proceed under a white veil in the parks' glowing lights. Noisemakers will be provided to shake things up. Norwalk Library staff will give out backpacks and read sweet fall stories to set the mood. Norwalk Reads will distribute free books, and InnovativeKids will be hosting a booth, as well.
Also, the Norwalk Fire Fighters Association will bring its fire safety trailer, smoke and all. Kids will have the opportunity to learn how to escape from a house fire as they are taught to crawl under the artificial smoke created by the trailer. Sparky the fire dog will also be there.
Free crafts will be provided by SONO Art Celebration, and there will be free refreshments, games, tattoos, face painting and more.
