My friends at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center reminded me that this Sunday, October 19 is their Harvest Spooktackular. Kids who come in costume will get a special prize, plus there's a haunted hayride, a trip through the Boo Barn, a pumpkin patch, face painting and a haybale maze. For all the details, visit www.stamfordmuseum.org.
Plus, two of my friends have suggested I post about this event, so here goes. I've never attended in the past, but with apple pie eating contests, story time, pony rides, hayrides, arts, crafts and a haunted hiking trail, the 39th Annual New Canaan Nature Center's Fall Fair does sound like a good time. It's this Saturday, October 18th. Rain or shine. Suggested donation is $20/family. Click here for details.
If you're all pumpkined out, swing by the Darien Sport Shop tomorrow between 11am - 3pm. American Girl dolls and their proud owners are invited to a free photo shoot and American Girl Pre-Halloween party on Saturday, October 18, from 11 am until 3pm.
