Garden party toasts Westport garden tour success

A day-long celebration of gorgeous gardens organized Sunday by the Westport Historical Society was capped with the Toast the Tour Garden Party on Veterans Green.

Under a big white tent open to the cool night air, that party followed the historical society's daytime Garden Market and the 23rd annual Hidden Garden Tour, where hundreds visited showcase gardens at five Westport and Fairfield homes. Collectively, the day's events are among the largest fundraising efforts by the society.

Party features included hors d'oeuvres from area restaurants, cocktails and desserts, along with auctions and live jazz.
