Thanksgiving Weekend Things To Do in Connecticut: Fun Runs, Lighted Boat Parade, Winterfest
This weekend unofficially marks the start of the holiday season, and Connecticut does not disappoint! Nutmeggers won't have to look far to find some festive fun. The state is soon to be covered in holiday lights, including the opening weekend of annual displays in New Haven, Hartford, and Meriden. There's the famous Lighted Boat Parade in Mystic, too, and Winterfest kicks off in Hartford. Or, you can work off some Thanksgiving calories at holiday-inspired fun runs in New Canaan, New Milford, and Fairfield.
Hopefully, you will have a chance to enjoy the company of friends and family, and have safe and easy travels if you are on the road this holiday weekend. Pass the downtime by checking out our Connecticut Holiday Fun Guide, updated with all the latest Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year's Eve events for the 2019 season. Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Mommy Poppins!
