The technology you use impresses no one. The experience you create with it is everything. Sean Gerety

Niantic Light Parade

STARS To STEM, with the help of community volunteers, has constructed a float to ride along the route of the Niantic Light Parade. Enjoy a night on the quaint town of Niantic on Main Street. This year marks the 33rd year of the Niantic Light Parade and we are excited to return to Main Street after we celebrated the season within the confines of McCook Point Park in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. DECEMBER 11th, 2021 at 6 PM on Main Street
