Hat City Ball to be held tonight in Danbury

The 3rd annual Hat City Ball is being held tonight in Danbury.  This coincides with the 75th year of the Danbury Museum and Historical Society.  Danbury Museum Executive Director Brigid Guertin says this year is a celebration of the past, and a look to the future.  Most of the work the museum does is about preserving past, but also about educating the community about the City's history. 


The Friends of the Danbury Museum group is honoring Mayor Mark Boughton for his preservation and restoration efforts and his work on behalf of the community to keep Danbury's history alive.  Guertin says purchasing the Octagon House and adapt it's use for City purposes is a great example.


The money raised at the Hat City Ball goes to the year long public programming offered at little to no expense to the community.  Most of that is school programming from 3rd grade through high schoolers. 


Another feature of the black-tie optional event is that people wear hats from different time periods to honor Danbury's hat manufacturing history.
