The 2024 Tour Continues in Norwich

On Sunday, May 26, the 2024 Dear Dad Tour continued in Norwich at the Cape Verdean Festival at Howard T. Brown Memorial Park. It was a gorgeous day to celebrate the culture of Cape Verde! Many families were present, including many fathers with their young children.

The stories we heard from eventgoers at the festival were incredibly touching, some even evoking tears.

One woman shared that her father cared not only for his own children, but for the other children in the neighborhood. When the ice cream truck came to visit, he bought ice cream not only for his daughter, but also for every single child in the neighborhood.

We want to thank everyone who was willing to share their story, as we know talking about a father can be a sensitive topic.

We look forward to hearing more stories from Connecticut residents about their fathers leading up to Father’s Day. We encourage everyone to come to one of our tour stops and share your “Father” story!
