The Hartford Downtown Business Improvement District (BID) was
once again very pleased to sponsor the 28th Annual Hartford Christmas
Parade on Saturday, November 8, 2014. There was a little nip in the air
and a bit windy, but that did not deter the huge crowds viewing over 80
entries and getting in that holiday spirit!
