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.
