Those crisp, clear mornings have put a spring in my step and reminded me once again that fall is my favorite time of year in Connecticut. This coming weekend is brimming with all manner of fall fun, from country fairs to school carnivals to Halloween adventures for the young to the slightly more mature.
As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and our friends at Lyman Orchards are sponsoring a Paint the Pumpkin Pink event on Saturday that will raise funds for the Middlesex Comprehensive Breast Center. While you're there, do some apple picking, check out the corn maze, and (from noon to 4:00 pm) visit with some of our crafty Mommy Poppins crew who will be on hand leading a creative magnetic clothespin craft activity.
Make sure that you subscribe to our weekly newsletters and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest so that you won't miss out on any Halloween or other fall fun! Read on for our highlights of events happening this weekend, and check our frequently updated daily event calendar for even more ideas.
