The 32nd annual Wilton Blueberry Festival will be held Friday and Saturday, Aug. 1-2, in Wilton. The festival’s website states that the festival “started in 1982 with a simple ‘Blueberry Church Bazaar.’ As the years have passed, it has grown into a two-day signature event, and a time for people from town and around to gather, socialize, and celebrate the heritage of this great region. Thirty years running and averaging more than 60 unique events throughout the weekend, the festival has something new to offer year after year.”

This year’s festival attractions are four medical inflatables coming from Houston, Texas, that have not made an appearance all together in New England before. Musical entertainment will include a free concert on Friday, Aug. 1, from the Pennsylvania-based musical group Re-creation which will finish a tour in Europe prior to performing at the Wilton Blueberry Festival.

Other planned activities include a free boat ride on Friday, the Wilton Children Museum will be open to the public for the first time, and Family & Friends CPR will be offered. The course is for people who want to learn CPR but who do not need a course completion card in CPR for employment. This course is ideal for schools and students, new parents, grandparents, babysitters and others interested in learning how to save a life. The cost is $15. For more information, call 207-778-4726.
