The Town of Shelton, Connecticut, will put on a new music and arts festival this summer.

Derek Signore, a co-promoter of the Riverfront Music Festival, says it’s a different concept from the Gathering of the Vibes concert in Bridgeport, which was a mainstay in the area for twenty years before shutting down in 2015.

“It would be great if we can capture some of what made that so great. I helped work that festival and I was there as an attendee so I saw it from both sides.”

He says the festival will blend different musical styles and genres.

An atheist backed by secular group the Freedom From Religion Foundation is suing the town of Shelton, Conn., for refusing to post his anti-religion banner in a public park during the Christmas season -- only months after another secular group announced plans to display a non-religious art piece in the city of New Haven this December.

The Habitat for Humanity Coastal Fairfield County chapter will be getting a present a few weeks after Christmas. The non-profit was awarded the wood from the Christmas tree on display at Rockefeller Center in New York City.
