NEW CANAAN — The town never tasted as delicious as it did Thursday evening, when the Chamber of Commerce hosted its eighth annual Taste of the Town Stroll.
Co-sponsored by Berkshire Hathaway and Walter Stewart’s market, the evening afforded people the chance to visit some merchants around downtown for a little snack treat, enjoy music in various locations, and help contribute to the New Canaan Food Pantry.
“We describe this night as a triple win,” explained Laura Budd, chamber marketing associate, with donations helping to feed local families.
“The strollers also get a night of fun,” she said, “and the stores get to meet a lot of new perspective customers.”
Budd said last year more than 400 people showed up to claim a map that earmarked the dozen or so participating businesses, and more were expected this time.
After people circled town to taste the offerings, they entered a raffle featuring a wide range of prizes from two dozen local businesses.
