Things to Do This Weekend in Connecticut

October 27th-October 29th, 2017

There’s always something fun to do in Connecticut, and this weekend is no different from the rest.

If you’ve got a little one tagging along with you this weekend, there’s plenty for you to do to keep them happy and entertained. Bring them down to the CT Trolley Museum for a Pumpkin Patch Trolley Ride, or to the Maritime Aquarium for AquaScarium, the aquarium’s Halloween event featuring face painters, a toy boat workshop, and even a dragon on the loose! Alternatively, you can bring them to The Hobgoblin Fair at Roaring Brooks Nature Center, or the Darien Halloween Parade at the Darien Fire Station. There’s also a fun Halloween event going on at Common Ground School called Creepy Town, and a Monster Mash Bash at Stepping Stones, both perfect for youngsters.

In the mood for a show? You’ve got quite a few to choose from! Alton Brown will be speaking at Foxwoods, “Girls Night” The Musical is being performed at the Shubert Theatre, and both Remembering Ray Brown and Christian McBride’s New Jawn are happening at the Ridgefield Playhouse.

Want to do something truly different? Head to the Ashbel Woodward House in North Franklin for a Public Ghost Hunt, check out Spirits at the Stowe for a historical scare, or take an Oktoberfest Cruise with the Maritime Aquarium. Or head on over to the Simsbury Spooktacular Chili Challenge for a fun and spooky chili cook-off perfect for the Fall.

Plus, October means one thing: Halloween! And that means that the scariest events are just starting to roll out. If you’re a fan of scares, check out The Haunted Graveyard at Lake CompounceThe Trail of TerrorThe Haunted Isle Trolley Ride with the Shore Line Trolley Museum, Rails to the Dark Side at the CT Trolley Museum, and more as spook season descends upon us.

Don’t miss out on all of your fall favorites! From apple picking to leaf peeping to scaring yourself silly, you’ve only got a month to cram it all in!
