To the Editor:
In honor of 4th of July weekend, our very own New Britain Bees will be giving away free tickets for Monday’s game starting at 2:05 p.m.
As a part of “New Britain Day,” the Bees want to be sure you are there to catch all the action with family and friends!
To qualify for a free ticket, you must be a New Britain resident.
If you’re looking for something to do on Saturday, July 1, the Bees will be hosting the Bridgeport Bluefish for a 6:35 p.m. start time. The first 1,500 fans will receive a free mini tape measure from Stanley, followed by a firework display after the conclusion of the game.
The fun doesn’t stop there! The New Britain Parks and Recreation Department will be hosting the 25th Annual Great American Boom at Stanley Quarter Park beginning at 5 p.m.
Join us in celebrating a quarter century milestone for one of our city’s most spirited and exciting events! From food vendors and games, to a live concert performed by the Latanya Farrell Band, there is something for everyone in the family to enjoy!
Following the food, games, and live music will be the announcement of our second All-America City award in a row, and of course a firework display to cap off a day of celebration and New Britain pride!
I hope to see everyone join us as we celebrate America’s 241st Birthday here in the great city of New Britain!
Erin E. Stewart,
Mayor, New Britain
