A little Journalism 101 refresher for the Patch staff – NEVER write (or say) “first annual” – use “inaugural” instead. You're welcome.

Thanks for spotting that. In press materials the Wilton Chamber of Commerce sent to Patch about the event, it was referred to as "The First Annual Wilton Center Street Fair and Sidewalk Sales." We've capitalized the words "First" and "Annual" to better reflect the materials we received. Ungrammatical as it may be, we hope everyone turns out Saturday for a great day of shopping and supporting local merchants--and makes Wilton's inaugural event worthy of earning the "Second Annual" title.

The Inaugural Wilton Center Street Fair and Sidewalk Sale was a smashing success. My business exhibited, and we really enjoyed the sense of community and the beautiful weather. Many thanks to the Chamber for organizing such a fantastic event!
