Monday was the 16th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, and the city of Norwalk held its annual remembrance ceremony at the front plaza at City Hall to remember the lives lost.
Mayor Harry Rilling was joined by state and local leaders, the city's police and fire departments and community members to remember the 14 Norwalk residents who died in the attacks, as well as the first responders who risked their lives.
Throughout the ceremony, 14 bells rang out to remember those 14 lives lost, as well as a 21-gun salute followed by song and prayer. The city has been doing this every year since the attacks.
A mobile 9/11 exhibit also stopped in Danbury to honor first responders and remember those who lost their lives. The 1,000-square foot exhibit was featured in the Danbury Fair Mall parking lot and included artifacts from the World Trade Center.
The Town of Fairfield held its annual event at Fire Headquarters on Reef Road.
Later Monday night in Cos Cob, 32 people with ties to the Greenwich community who lost their lives in the attacks were honored.
