Stratford Readies for First Annual Restaurant Week and Kicks Off 375th Annivesary

Turning 375 years young is a milestone worth celebrating, and Stratford is going to kick off its year long celebration of its history and culture this Sunday, with an ceremony at Perry House, which coincides with the inaugural Stratford Restaurant Week.

The opening ceremony at The Perry House, one of Stratford's oldest buildings, will start at 3 pm.  The Grand Marshal for the September 20th parade will be named at this time, as docent tours by Perry House volunteers in historical dress will be given.  The day also commemorates The Perry House's 10th Anniversary as a nonprofit organization that sought to restore the historic Stratford landmark.
