NORWICH — The Norwich Business Improvement District (B.I.D.) has been planning fall festivities for this month, and are bringing back some old favorites as well as a new seasonal festival. The first ever "Norwitch Fall Festival" will take place on October 30, beginning at 9 a.m. in conjunction with Saturday in the Park with Chobani.

"So years ago we obviously had the Norwich Pumpkin Festival. So this year we're gonna try to change it up, try to bring a little bit of that back and do the Norwitch Festival," said Norwich B.I.D. Executive Committee member Mindy Chawgo.

Attendees can expect a full day of Halloween fun, including face painting, magic tricks, music, and more, according to Chawgo.

"We're going to have pumpkin carving, we're going to have a ton of kids’ activities," she said. "We're gonna have a balloon artist and face painting, we're going to have some magic down there, we'll have some Disney characters wandering around ... We're going to have some music on the stage, have a bunch of kids’ stuff to incorporate everybody in the whole day."

But the fun doesn't stop there. Several other local Halloween events will also be in East and West park on October 30. Guests can browse the locally made wares at Saturday in the Park, watch the YMCA Halloween Parade, and participate in the second annual Trunk or Treat, also put on by the B.I.D.
