Since I was a little girl my family has been attending Sailfest (although we called it the Groton/New London fireworks). This is a great opportunity for families and friends to enjoy being outside, listen to some music, try some local restaurants and view some of the best fireworks I have ever seen.

My family typically brings picnic food and enjoys a day outside waiting for the fireworks to start. We play cards and walk around. Depending on where you go there are bands. It’s a lot of fun. This year it is Saturday, July 11th. I highly recommend it. These are the town fireworks I grew up on and it made me a fireworks-snob. I’ve always assumed this was the kind of fireworks show every town put on.

Plus when you do fun activities that make you happy, make your smile, and make you feel good you are helping your whole well being.
