This year’s The Witch of Blackbird Pond Ball is slowly fading into memory of those who attended and is proving to be the equal of its predecessor. Ascot Catering did the seemingly impossible, providing even more delectable treats than last year. iHeartMedia’s Director of Community Affairs & Community Programming and Wethersfield native Renee DiNino and DJ Joey Brooks kept things humming all evening long and she even managed to corral the Sanderson Sisters into delivering a fabulous performance for the Wethersfield audience. Not to be outdone The Vintage Dance Society brought their “A” game and had ball goers up on their feet and out on the dance floor. A splendid time was had by all and the word has gone out, “I can’t wait for next year’s ball.”
Below are three galleries documenting the event and the creativity guests brought to bear in choosing their costumes. If you attended the ball, you can enjoy these photos as a reminiscence of a truly memorable evening. If you weren’t able to join us, you can see what you missed, and plan accordingly for next year.
To navigate through the photos, click on one of the following images and the associated gallery will open in a light box in the center of your screen. In the top right hand corner is the control panel. From left to right the buttons are “Zoom In,” “Full Screen,” and “Close.” WHS recommends viewing the galleries in full screen and navigating through the photos at your own pace by clicking the left and right arrows on the screen or by using the corresponding left and right arrows on your keyboard. If you click on an image, it will display at a larger size. Click the image again and it will return to its normal size. Clicking outside the image will close the light box and return you to the web page. The same function can be accomplished by clicking the “Close” button on the control panel or by hitting the “Escape” button on your keyboard.
