I moved to Downtown Danbury to be closer to the action, to be able to walk to fun events down on the green and each year the options for a fun night out get better and better. Last year, I heard about the Danbury International Festival for the first time and I figured I would go but I did not expect much.

I thought, I'll go and hangout for an hour and head home but that did not happen. I went and stayed for hours! The event was packed, the music was great and the food was off the charts. If you only attend two Danbury events this year make sure you go to the San Gennaro Festival and the International Festival.

17 Stunning Danbury Photos Along With Random Odd Facts About the City

The day I took this round of pictures (September 15 or 16th I can't remember), the light all over the city was just perfect. The sun was dancing in all the right places on the buildings, the trees and the grass. I said to hell with it, I'm publishing these photos. But what should I write in the description? I decided to pair the images with odd Danbury facts I gathered from prior articles. 

Maybe this works out, maybe not at least I can say "look at this!"
