Celebrate fall at Ansonia Nature Center‘s Autumnfest! Ride over hill and dale in our horse-drawn “story” hay wagon, where you’ll hear some spooky Halloween tales! Learn about bats, spiders and owls! Have some fresh-squeezed apple cider and fresh-made donuts, try pumpkin carving, get your face painted, and make some creative crafts. Proceeds benefit the Nature Center’s playground project. This event is rain or shine, and requires no park admission fee. For more information, call 203-736-1053.
Head out to the Flanders Nature Center on Saturday from 10am-3pm for a day of magic in nature! Come enjoy music, vendors, a crafts show, storytelling, a performance by the Main Street Ballet, and many other fun activities. Come in your fairy costume and march in the parade. You’re also invited to build your own Faerie/Wizard house which will be displayed during the festival. There is a fee of $5 per person (free for ages 2 and under).
