Spring Stroll returns May 5

Professional jugglers, student chalk artists, stilt walkers, and unicyclists — Ridgefield’s Spring Stroll has it all.

This year’s spring festival will run from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, May 5.

“We’re going to have extended hours this year going to 7 instead of 5,” said Kathy Graham of Downtown Ridgefield, the merchants association dedicated to promoting and enhancing the village.

What’s one event that will make this year’s stroll stand out?

“There will be a chalk quilt in front of Fairfield County Bank Insurance at the corner of Main and Catoonah,” said Whitney Williams of Squash’s.

“The Boys & Girls Club will have its members fill in squares,” added Graham. “We want it to be as big as possible.”
