New London to host Neighbor Day on May 18

New London — New London will celebrate its fourth annual Neighbor Day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 18 at Riverside Park.

The event will include musical groups, children’s activities, food vendors, pony rides, a petting zoo, and more.

Neighbor Day began in Westerly in 1993 in response to a fatal teen stabbing in that community. The theme of Neighbor Day is nonviolence and “Love thy Neighbor.” Mayor Daryl Justin Finizio, who served on the Westerly Town Council, and New London resident Lorain Ohio Simister, founded the local event in 2011.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information please call (860) 514-7101 or (860) 437-6394.
