Celebrate Memorial Day Norwalk
May 22, 2014
This Memorial Day take advantage of one of the great perks of living at The Waypointe: proximity to great events and relaxing outdoor destinations.
The Annual Memorial Day Parade
Start your day at the Annual Memorial Day Parade, starting at Veterans Park in Norwalk. The parade begins at 10 AM sharp, but if you want to sleep in even later, just catch it towards the tail end near the Green on East Avenue. Marching bands from two local high schools, civic organizations, youth groups and athletic teams and community groups will all be present to support Veterans - and prizes will be awarded for the best floats.
Picnic at the Park
Weather permitting, Memorial Day is traditionally a popular day to relax outside and in Norwalk you’re in no short supply of great outdoor spots and community parks.
Calf Pasture Beachis a great place to unwind outdoors whether you’re looking for sun and sand activites, bocce ball, relaxation in a shady pavillion and everything inbetween. If you don’t feel like packing lunch, Ripka’s Beach Cafe offers a great selection of seafood and other casual fare. You can also stop by Calfe Mu’s for ice cream, coffee and beach gear like sunscreen, if you happen to forget it. And good news if you’re a Waypointe resident: it’s free for Norwalk locals!
Veteran’s Memorial Park and Marinais the place to be this Memorial Day. If you already stop by for the parade, there’s no reason to leave. Bring your picnic supplies and stake out one of the many shady picnic tables. Or just pick up some concessions from one of the stands and take a stroll on the esplanade and soak in the beautiful views of Norwalk’s scenic waterfront.
At The Waypointe you don’t have to sacrifice a community for upscale luxury living. Just outside your door you’ll find all the coziness and charm of days-gone-by and inside you’ll have all the stylish, luxury amenities your modern lifestyle requires.
