A Few State Parks Will Be Closed This Weekend

Three state parks will be closed through the Memorial Day weekend.

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection said Wharton Brook State Park in Wallingford, Sleeping Giant State Park in Hamden and Squantz Pond State Park in New Fairfield will be entirely closed because of the damage from last week's storm.

There are many events scheduled around Connecticut to honor America's men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice serving our nation. There are events throughout the entire weekend; not just Memorial Day itself, Monday, May 28th.

Towns are listed alphabetically by county.
