Families can kick-off their Halloween festivities with the Darien Arts Center’s first-ever Halloween Family Fest, a free event from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, Saturday, Oct. 26.
Children of all ages will have fun and get in the spirit of Halloween with crafts, treats, storytelling, sing-alongs and drop-in dance classes at the complementary family-oriented event, where all are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes.
Most activities are geared for those ages 3 and up, but children of all ages are welcome.
