It's hard to imagine anything more summer-y than a parade of tall ships. Unless it's an outdoor carnival or maybe fireworks. Or better yet, tall ships, an outdoor carnival, specialty foods, transforming movie robots, fireworks and live music - for free. That, in a nutshell, is New London Sailfest, a three-day downtown party with all of the above, and more. If somehow none of that sounds like fun to you, there are plenty of other waterfront options like the Rowayton River Ramble, Riverfront Fireworks and Concert, and a Riverfront Food Truck Festival. Non-nautical activities include an outdoor fairy tale theater, a backyard birding walk, and family mini-golf and fine art outings.
