Connecticut is located firmly in Patriots country, so for many of us this weekend is all about the Super Bowl. If you've got little ones, you know they can only sit still for so much non-animated TV so we've lined up all sorts of activities to wear them out before kickoff, whether they're interested in eagles, LEGOs, or anything in between. It's also a fantastic weekend to do some cultural exploration, with Lunar New Year celebrations in New Haven and New Canaan as well as a wonderful storytelling workshop in honor of Black History Month.
But wait—there's more! This weekend is also Take Your Child to the Library day, and libraries across the state are hosting all kinds of fabulous activities from live animal demonstrations to robots to magic shows (all events are free, but check to see which require advanced registration). At most events there will be staff on hand to sign kids up for their own library cards if they don't already have them.
We update our Events Calendar daily so be sure to check for even more great activities. To keep up with the latest family-friendly events and activities, be sure to also sign up for our newsletters, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. If you haven't had a chance, be sure to vote for your favorite Connecticut businesses with our BESTIE awards—we're offering some terrific prizes for sharing your input.
