Halloween Parade Canceled

The Weatport Parks and Recreation Department, along with the Downtown Merchants Association and the Westport PAL, canceled today’s Halloween parade due to the inclement weather.

Instead, treats and entertainment will be available in Town Hall beginning at 3:30 p.m

Children, especially those under 8, are invited to gather treats in Town Hall offices and meet in the auditorium for music and fun by entertainer, Frank C.

Inclement weather also caused cancellation of the parade last year, the first time since 2012, when Super Storm Sandy was approaching.

Real Estate Report: Pay Attention to Market

By Judy Szablak

Special to WestportNow

When establishing a price on a home that you are either buying or selling in Westport, pay close attention to what the market is telling you. Image

While no two homes can be exactly alike due to differing amenities, lots, and/or location, there are a few determining factors that will always point to the right value.

Prior similar sales are significant, however proper adjustments would need to be made with the variety of closed inventory.

One of the most important reasons behind this is bank appraisals.

In Conversation Image
Westport photographer Richard Frank (r) tonight discussed his work with Westport Library Artist-in-Residence and illustrator/photographer Miggs Burroughs. They talked about Franks’s 40-year career and the path that led him into photography, including taking the seminal photo of Muhammad Ali, which helped validate his decision to pursue photography as a career.  Frank’s works are featured in the Great Hall exhibit “Always Looking,” which runs through Jan. 4.
