The temperature was only in the 40s last Saturday—good weather for Red Flannels—if you had them on. But for die-hard fans of the Red Flannel Festival, a little nip in the air wasn’t enough to keep them away. Thousands of people turned out for the annual festival, titled “Deeply Rooted in Tradition.”
According to Police Chief Roger Parent, there were no problems with the new location of the beer tent in the American Legion Parking lot, nor did they have any problems with patrons there. They did turn away a few people that they could tell had already had enough to drink. The only arrests they made involved patrons of area bars.
