Best Things To Do in Connecticut with Kids in October 2021

October—one of the most beautiful months in Connecticut—is also packed with fun events for families. The best things to do with kids in October include happenings with pumpkins, garlic, kites, parades, and more. You can check out a Faerie Village or Zombie Fashion Show, and show off your costumes in a Halloween parade. Visit one of the many fun fall festivals happening across the state. And, pumpkin patchescorn mazes, and apple picking orchards are all in full swing.
