Connecticut Limousine Rental
May 20, 2013 - For those who are new to Connecticut might find it odd that the residents are so proud and fond of their river Connecticut...but the authorities have always played a huge role in accentuating the fact that the river is a connecting point between the metropolitan Connecticut society and nature. All year round, there are fun activities, games, festivals, gatherings, promotions and kid-friendly exhibitions being held at the river but come July 6, 2013, it would once again be time for jaw-dropping, gorgeous fireworks. It is River Fest time!
For one, admission or watching the games and contests being held during this festival is completely free of charge, there is no admission fee. At the venue along the river, there are activities like lumber jack competition, live entertainment, kids activities, rowing competition and also a spectacular water ski show that never fails to awe even people who have seen the shows year after year.
The fireworks, which is the highlight of the festival, is usually scheduled to go off at the strike of 9pm on that night so, be there early if you want to reserve a space for your family and friends. The festival is official on the road at 4pm sharp. If the entrance at Mortensen Riverfront Plaza is packed, we reckon you can get in more easily through the Great River Park entrance. Just get the Connecticut party bus driver to drop you off in East Hartford.
For this year’s participants, there is something new to look forward to - a new UConn Timber Sports competition which will see lumberjacks show off their unique techniques which includes modern and traditional techniques. For urbanites, this is quite an eye-opening experience, to be honest. It is exciting to watch them saw it off using different techniques but it goes to show that despite it being a profession that few people actually know or care about, they are completely in control of their work and the techniques are jaw-droppingly accurate. This year, there will be men and women in the mixed team contest and they will be fighting for the coveted titles this year.
Another highlighted feature of River Fest is the water ski show. The ski show is done by none other than the Oxbow team of performers who are all pumped to show off their best moves for the pyramids, ballet, skiing, and jetski shows.
At the point of writing this, the schedule’s not been updated and we suggest that our Connecticut party bus rental customers check their website at RiverFront.org for detailed itinerary and show schedules.
Hammonasset Beach State Park (Connecticut)
Mar 21, 2013 - Suffice to say, people don’t come to Hammonasset Beach State Park for surfing, nor do they come here for watersports....they basically bringing their brood in large rented party buses for a good time, relaxing under the fantastic weather, share precious memories with their loved ones and friends and maybe do a little swimming in between eating, drinking and playing catch up. To say that Hammonasset Beach State Park is off-the-beaten-track is stretching things a little far because, very clearly, you can find the park well listed on most major travel sites and blogs, so, it has been receiving a lot of attention and attendance from local as well as foreign tourists. Once you have experienced the relaxed and languid time that Hammonasset can gracefully accord you, you will find that spending a day here is simply not enough.
There is two full miles worth of sandy, flat, glistening beach and it is big and wide enough to accommodate the summer crowds too. And we are talking about HUGE crowds so, make your way there early to book your own spot. Once you find the spot of your choice, whip out the blanket, umbrella-chair and it is time to let the R&R begin in earnest.
One of the most common questions people will have about parks and beaches would be amenities - yes, there is ample facilities here which includes clean and well-maintained restrooms and showers. Of course, because of how narrow the beach is (it is long-ish, instead), we can’t say things like ‘it is comparable to Rhode Island but as far as space is concerned, there is absolutely huge enough.
If you are not game for swimming and sunbathing, worry not, because there are plenty of space for biking, picnicking, running, and maybe even a little kite-flying if you prefer. It is a beach but remember, it is also a park for children to play and for people to walk their dogs after a tough working week. And besides, it is one of the best beaches you will find Connecticut.
Folks who live in and around the beach will take regularly long after-dinner walks here and for foreigners, they might even stop by at the nature center. Admittedly, the locals don’t bother much with the center but it is well-maintained by the authorities all the same.
According to some people, bird-watching is also an all-time favorite activity at the beach-park. Some will even venture out to the trail of saltwater marshes. We hope everyone has the best of time exploring and relaxing in Hammonasset Beach Park as much as some people we know.
Things to do before prom night
Jan 23, 2013 - The big night approaching and you can help but get oh-so-excited. We don’t blame you. Many grownups look back on their prom nights with fond memories and might even find themselves smiling sheepishly at themselves and the things that they did on that special night...but there are many who do NOT. There are things that you should and should not do to ensure that prom night remains as a special memory instead of the kind horrific nightmare that you may not want to remember ever again.
There is no shame in going alone or in a group
While it is common for people to go to proms as a couple, this is no longer the norm in our modern society. Remember, your prom night is going to be as good as the company you pick. If you have a boyfriend and the both of you are facing some relationship problems, going together could make or break your prom. Going with friends who are not really your friends might present to be a problem too, so pick and choose your company wisely. It is better to head over alone than go with people with whom you have a quasi-relationship with.
Thanks to the movies, proms about late night kisses and impromptu romances
