  • I just wanted to send you a quick note on how great the Taste of Windsor was this year.

    As always, the food was awesome! Always new and delicious food and like normal I was stuffed when I left.
    I liked the way they changed the raffle this year, I thought it worked very well.
    Speeches were just the right length and the music is always good.

    Let Ashley and the rest of the team know they did a great job!!

  • Just an email to say how lovely downtown Windsor looks with all the white lights, especially on the lamp posts along the Green in front of Town Hall. I was driving south on Palisado Avenue, & stopped at the light where it joins Broad Street. As I gazed down the street toward the Green, all the lamp posts lined up, enhanced by their tiny white lights...quite an entrancing scene. Thanks for making this treat possible.

  • I just wanted to write and thank you for the wonderful "Nightmare on Broad Street" event. My family lives in Hartford, in an apartment building that doesn't have trick-or-treating, so we wanted to find a place to take our three-year-old son for a Halloween outing. We drove to Windsor and were so impressed! Even though there were hundreds of families milling around, it was so well-organized that it didn't seem crowded. All of the businesses were so friendly and enthusiastic. We rode the horse-drawn carriage, which thrilled my son.

    The event really made our Halloween!
