Fairfield, Conn. – The Fairfield Chamber of Commerce is reminding its residents that it will be hosting a fun & festive Dog Halloween Costume Parade at the upcoming Fairfield Harvest Market event on the Old Town Hall Green/Saturday, October 19th.  

The Harvest Market will open at 10:00am and close at 4:00pm.  Over 85 vendors will pop-up their tents, all ready to greet the public to offer:  pumpkins, apples, cider, jewelry, household items, furniture, home décor, children’s books & clothing, beauty products, apparel and pet items … plus, some vendors from the ever-popular Fairfield Farmer’s Market will be offering meat, eggs, produce, deserts, baked goods, and more!
