This Saturday Javier Colon will be at the 5th Annual Ct Walks For Haiti
Attracting hundreds of supporters, the annual walk through West Hartford Center and Blue Back Square raises funds for established Haitian charities. Walkers gather at St. Peter Claver parish center for the 2.5 mi. walk and the Haitian-themed festival, offering authentic Haitian cuisine, crafts, music, and a silent auction, with items ranging from Red Sox tickets to gift cards from local businesses, and more.
The festivities begin at 10:30 a.m. with music, food, crafts and auction; the walk starts at 12:00; festivities close at 2:30 p.m.. Entertainment includes Javier Colon, the Interdistrict Steel Drum Ensemble, Notes over Storrs, the Hall High School Freshmen Choir, and more.
Walkers and non-walkers will have plenty to enjoy. The event will take place rain or shine.
