Hooker Day Parade & Festival

ScreenHunter 180

Saturday May 13th, 2017 at 11 AM – 5 PM

The Hooker Day Parade is a family-oriented extravaganza with giant puppets, costumes, candy, Mardi Gras beads, marching bands, and brass bands. This boisterous, fun-filled procession celebrates the Capital City and the creativity of its people.

The Hooker Day Parade will now be one part of a larger “Hooker Day Parade & Festival” designed to further celebrate the founding of Hartford, its residents, and its artistic and cultural assets. The new Hooker Day will feature dozens of musical acts, food trucks and local vendors, a craft beer garden, child-friendly activities, classic car show and, of course, the best parade around.
