New Haven Register: You may spend July 3 watching fireworks at Savin Rock. You may spend July 4 sunning at Hammonnasset or watching fireworks off East Rock in New Haven. But come July 6-9, when OpSail2012 Connecticut blows in, you’re going to want to be in New London.
It’s not just a parade of tall ships.
OpSail2012 Connecticut—taking place in conjunction with New London’s annual post-July 4 Sailfest celebration—is expected to draw up to 1 million people when it unfolds in New London and neighboring East Lyme.
