Faces of Torrington

The main street of Torrington was blocked off for a street fair, so I parked and walked through.


This singer was giving his all for a syrupy love song.


Krawdaddy has a New Orleans music show on Torrington's community radio station, 
WAPJ (89.9 FM), and Joel's show is called Unhinged.


I almost signed up for a subscription to the local newspaper to reward a woman who could
wear a balloon hat without looking embarrassed.


Kathy had a booth selling clothes.


And Herman was a Seabee in the Navy.

I love zydeco music... Krawdaddy is a station I would try to tune to in NO.

LOVE that balloon hat. Bless her heart for wearing it and it doesn't look like there is much to Kathy's clothes!

The woman with the balloon hat chose her colours well to match what she was wearing.
