NORWALK, Conn. – Drivers in lower East Norwalk and South Norwalk are urged to be cautious on the roads this weekend during traffic delays expected during a two-day community festival.
The Norwalk Police Department issued a statement Thursday detailing the delays expected during this weekend’s Norwalk Seaport Association Oyster Festival at Veterans Memorial Park on Seaview Avenue. The event is scheduled from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.
“Please expect delays in lower East Norwalk and South Norwalk due to road closures and festival traffic,” the statement says. “We ask that all drivers use extreme caution if driving in the area of the festival due to increased pedestrian traffic.”
Norwalk officers will be posted throughout the area to assist with vehicle traffic and crowd control, according to police, who added that “Resident Only” parking will be posted on streets near the festival.
Now in its sixth year, the Oyster Festival is to feature rides, games, food, and live entertainment from headliners like Sawyer Fredericks, winner of the 2015 "The Voice" competition.
Tickets to the festival cost $12 for adults, $5 for children ages 5-12, and are free for children younger than 5. Seniors ages 62 and older pay $10 per ticket.
