For 36 years, Norwalk's Oyster Festival has been primarily about one thing: oysters.
The festival returns to Veterans Park this weekend.
"We'll be serving local oysters. They're all deep water oysters," says festival chairman Jerry Toni. "They're good for you, they're fresh, and the patrons really enjoy them."
You've got your oysters, you've got your rides, but this year a few new attractions are here, as well.
Those include a BMX bike stunt show, a 250-foot long zipline and a craft beer tent that will house between 20 and 25 craft beers from across New England.
This year's music lineup is highlighted by The Village People, who return after their performance last summer was rained out.
"They're a real favorite," Toni says. "By the time they get into their second song, they'll have this place rocking."
The Oyster Festival runs Friday 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.; Saturday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.; and Sunday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is $10, with specials on children admission Saturday and Sunday.
