I don't want to scare you (ahem), but we're just two weeks away from Halloween. My household is busily nailing down costumes and household decorations, and I realized that we might be taking the whole thing a little too seriously when the sales clerk at Michael's greeted me by name this weekend. Whether your household is similarly obsessed or you're looking to scare up a little enthusiasm, we've got just the thing for a week of frightful fun from haunted hayrides to seasonal crafts to that all important pumpkin patch, and as a special bonus, most of these activities are absolutely free. For even more ideas, check our Event Calendar and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest to be sure you're up to date on the latest and greatest activities every week in CT.
