On Saturday July 29, State Senator Paul Formica attended New London’s Tiny Town, an interactive street festival designed to bring food, fun, education and community building to downtown.

The festival took place outside of Spark Makerspace over two days with the creation of a mini village in the city through the placement of tiny houses, painted streetscapes, and programming. The event featured cuisine from up-and-coming food entrepreneurs from the Cultivator Kitchen as well as open activities such as music, a walking tour and town swap.
