Greenwich said goodbye to Summer with the 7th Annual Greenwich Cup at the Greenwich Polo Club Sunday afternoon.
Over 1,000 people attending the event that included a pet parade, a Ferrari Car show, samplings from various Greenwich restaurants and the signature polo match.
Jen Danzi, event producer of the Greenwich Cup said "Really it's about getting friends together who enjoy polo and like to have fun. We had people come by the bus load! During the day there is Rugby match, there is a pet parade and a children's playground."
Kris Ruby of Greenwich said "I look forward to the pet parade every year. This year I brought my Pomeranian out today and I'm so excited. I have a little outfit for him and I'm excited for my dog to compete."
Many attendees said the event has become a Greenwich tradition and is a way to celebrate the end of Summer.
"Seeing all my friends, everybody gets together" said Sarah Bamford of Greenwich. "I'm really excited for everyone to hang out and have fun."
"It is so uniquely Greenwich" said Tina Pray of Greenwich. "To have a facility and a piece of property like this that has for generations been a polo field and have the horses and everybody out on this beautiful day. It's a Greenwich legacy. It's been here and people love it and it's always a celebration when you come to Greenwich polo."
The event also raised money for a local non-profit.
Danzi added "A percentage of the proceeds to TAG - the Transportation Association of Greenwich. We have some other non-profits here that have tables so people can become aware of what they do."
