Halloween Weekend Happenings
Don't forget that many of the local corn mazes will be closing soon. For a list of locally owned, AMAZING corn mazes, check the archives of the NutmeggerNotes blog. Scott's Orchard in East Lyme is also a fun, smaller corn maze! Our 4 & 6 year old got through it and found all of the stamps within 30 minutes.
On with the list of Halloween happenings for Saturday 10/30 & Sunday 10/31.
