NORWALK, Conn. – Summery temperatures, sporadic rain showers and – sigh! – “likely” showers with a threat of a Monday thunderstorm, are expected this Memorial Day weekend. Still, all the traditional activities are planned, including parades in Rowayton and East Norwalk and the art festival in Pinkney Park.
As for trash: No pickups will be made Monday, as Norwalk goes to the holiday schedule.
Here’s what is going on:
The annual Memorial Day Parade starts at noon at the Rowayton Community Center. The parade will end at the Civil War cannon at the intersection of Rowayton and Wilson Avenues.
Also Sunday, the Rowayton Art Association’s annual Art in Pinkney Park celebration is scheduled to take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The parade is scheduled to step off at 10 a.m. Monday, May 30, from Veterans Park, winding up at the Town Green on East Avenue. Last year, an estimated 25,000 watched the parade.
Garbage and recycling collection services will follow the holiday schedule.
Both garbage and recycling normally collected Monday will be picked up Tuesday, May 31. Tuesday routes will be collected Wednesday, June 1, and so on until Friday routes are collected Saturday, June 4.
The Norwalk Transfer Station at 61 Crescent St., and the Yard Debris Site at 15 South Smith St., will both be closed Monday, May 30 (Memorial Day), and will reopen for regular business hours Tuesday, May 31.
