Far-Out Fun Things To Do in Connecticut this Weekend:

Looking for the best things to do in Connecticut this weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your list for this weekend.

This weekend is brought to you by our favorite fall things taken to a whole other level! Visit a garden rooftop turned into a giant illuminated kaleidoscope for free in Norwalk, grab your sweaters and flashlights and take a family walk through the corn maze under the light of the moon, try so much chili at a charity cook-off, or take a jack o' lantern stroll that makes a teachable moment about life on an ancestral homestead. You can also carve pumpkins at the Mystic Seaport Museum and party in your costume at the Pumpkin Festival in Ivorytown. 

For more fall fun, see our full list of fall festivals and fairs in Connecticut, explore our Connecticut Day Trips Guide, or choose one of our favorite scenic drives for great leaf peeping.  

To see what else is happening around the state, browse the Mommy Poppins Events Calendar. For the latest and best family-friendly activities, subscribe to our weekly newsletters and follow us on Facebook and Instagram
