Freddie Fixer Parade
The Freddie Fixer Parade is an annual event in New Haven in the Dixwell/Newhallville neighborhood. Begun by Dr. Fred Smith in 1962 it was a way to celebrate after cleaning up the neighborhood. You can read more about the history in the above link.
I didn't know about it until watching the news last night however you can read about it in the New Haven Register and watch a video. So step right up to the New Haven Register Newstand and grab yourself a paper.
After serving congregations in Fairfield, Bridgeport, and Wilton, CT I am the Senior Redevelopment Pastor at Orange Congregational Church in Orange, CT. Prior to that I lived in Jerusalem (the real one) and I have three GORGEOUS children, the loves of my life.
