We're in the thick of it now: the hot days and humid nights, the complaints about boredom that start earlier and earlier every day, the begging for just one more You Tube video (it's not just my kids, right?). Some days it's more than a parent can bear. Happily, this weekend there's plenty to entertain the whole family, from a fun, free aerial trapeze show to a pirate adventure on Sheffield Island to a rocking beach-side concert—and there's even a candy coated drop off opportunity that gives busy parents a few hours to themselves.
If you're still looking for a summer time adventure, check out our guide to camping spots across the state, and if those seem a little ambitious, sign up for next weekend's family camp out on the grounds of the Stamford Museum and Nature Center (preregistation required so don't miss out).
Check the Mommy Poppins events calendar to see what else is happening this weekend (and beyond!). For the latest and best family-friendly events, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.
Have a great weekend!
