It's not too late to enjoy the river walk...

Indeed, Riverfront Recapture will be holding the Pipes in the Valley Celtic Festival this weekend at Riverfront Plaza. From there you can walk the beautiful new path that leads a short distance north to Riverside Park. On the way, you'll find an important piece of Hartford history: a highway overpass pillar that hosts plaques showing the high-water marks for the three biggest floods of the Connecticut River over the past century. I've highlighted them in the photo below,
part of a bunch taken on the riverfront last month.
