NORWALK, Conn.-- First County Bank has donated $20,000 to be the primary sponsor of Nowrwalk's 36th annual Oyster Festival that will be held Sept. 6 through Sept. 8 at Veterans Park.

Karen Kelly, chief marketing officer of First County Bank, said the bank became more involved with the Oyster Festival over the years as the association’s need for sponsorship dollars has increased. This is the third consecutive year that the bank decided to be the event’s main sponsor.

“We are proud to participate as the presenting sponsor of the 2013 Oyster Festival and building on the success and enthusiasm surrounding Norwalk Seaport Association’s mission of celebrating and raising public awareness of Norwalk’s maritime heritage,” Rey Giallongo, chairman and CEO of First County Bank, said in a statement.

The festival will include a BMX Bike acrobatics show, a craft beer tasting tent, and a performance by The Village People on Saturday, Sept. 7.
