Weekend Fun: Disney on Ice, "Pool" Parties, and Family Game Day; Jan 5-6

Friday, Saturday, Sunday activities for kids in Connecticut

Out with the old and in with the new! The first weekend of 2019 kicks off with the final weekend of some holiday favorites, and ushers in some fantastic new family events. While this weekend is your last chance to enjoy Winterfest at Bushnell Park and Gingerbread Lane, Mystic Aquarium and Earthplace are introducing some new winter programs. If the holidays have left your wallet a little short on funds, we have some weekend happenings that are totally free for the whole family, like Bald Eagle viewing at Shepaug Dam. You can find even more no-cost family fun in our Free Things To Do In January post.

To make sure that you don't miss any of the fun, subscribe to our weekly newsletters and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. Read on for our highlights of events happening this weekend, and check our frequently updated daily event calendar for even more ideas.
