New Canaan’s Taste of the Town
On August 23rd, the streets of New Canaan filled with locals and displays from more than twenty different stores and restaurants. The Taste of the Town Stroll is an annual food-raiser for the New Canaan Food Pantry. Participants pass restaurants and stores as they stroll through the streets of New Canaan in hopes to get a sample of something tasty! You may be thinking, “What could BMW be handing out that is tasty?” We tried to make the most out of it and brought German candy to the event! We handed out Haribo gummy treats and MOAOM strips (similar to a Laffy Taffy) as participants passed by our tent. Besides tasting the food, there was another piece to the Stroll for the participants. Those who chose to donate to the Food Pantry received a chance to win prizes after visiting at least 12 of the stores! The stores and restaurants simply check off participants’ maps as they passed so the $4,000 worth of prizes could be given out accordingly at the end of the night. We hope to see everyone next year!
