Tennis, anyone? The CT Open rolls into town this weekend, and you won't want to miss defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska or two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitovas at the Connecticut Tennis Center at Yale. Their Kids Day on Sunday offers affordable admission as well as on-court clinics, giveaways, and autograph sessions. Or perhaps you have a hankering for some carnival rides, the animals, the music, and fried dough? Then don't miss the array of country fairs happening all over Connecticut from Bridgewater to Somers to Lyme, not to mention the Oyster Festival in Milford or a Dragon Boat Festival in Hartford. If all this fair-going has left you looking for something a little more sedate, catch your breath at the Up-Cycled Paper Bead Necklace workshop in New Haven or an outdoor screening of The Secret Life of Pets at Riverwalk in Shelton.
