It's finally here: the first official weekend of spring! As the weather slowly catches up with the calendar, the weekends are beginning to provide more and more excuses to be outside and savor the almost seasonal temperatures. We are finishing up the St. Patrick's Day holiday with parades in Mystic and Greenwich, and the countdown to Easter is officially under way with the Easter Bunny in position and ready for photos at Stamford Town Center, Westfarms, and the Shoppes at Buckland Hills among other locations.
If the warmer weather has you looking ahead to summer, be sure to check our Summer Camp and Day Camp Guide as some of the more popular options are filling up quickly (our handy guide to Summer Camp Open Houses is a good place to start).
