Memorial Day Weekend: Best Things to Do in Connecticut with Kids

Fairs, festivals, and parades - it must be Memorial Day Weekend! The calendar is once again filled with celebrations of all shapes and sizes. Head to Wethersfield to check out the annual Memorial Day Heritage Weekend, head off into the sunset with the Maritime Aquarium, or have some good old-fashioned fun at the Carnival at Danbury Fair Mall. For a laid-back outing, plan the perfect beach day at one of these Family Friendly Local Beaches

As always, keep tabs on our Connecticut events calendar for daily updates on happenings at favorite spots, and more local and virtual opportunities for Memorial Day family fun.
