Holiday Strolls and Tree Lighting Events in the Hartford Area

One of the best things about living in Connecticut is the small-town feel our communities work so hard to capture. This sentiment can especially be felt around the holidays when people come together. So even if you don't live in these towns in Hartford County, you are welcome and encouraged to celebrate the season at these events.  Check out our Holiday Guide and our list of Holiday Light Shows for even more tips on fun ways to celebrate the season.

Celebrate Father's Day in the Hartford Area

It's Father's Day weekend, which means it's time to celebrate all the dads that make life special, whether they're fathers, step-dads, grandpas, uncles, or friends. Rather than give them another tie or coffee mug, consider planning a memorable outing with the entire family. There are many great events going on throughout the Hartford area (and more throughout Connecticut), where fathers and children can spend quality time together, strengthening the bond they already share. Unless otherwise noted, all events are taking place Sunday, June 19, 2016.

Pumpkin Patches in the Hartford Area

The farm fields are lined with bright orange pumpkins just waiting to be picked and carved into Jack-o-Lanterns.
