November 9, 2019 @ 9:00 am - November 11, 2019 @ 4:00 pm

Fall into Fun Family Weekends at Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo

Fall is a great season for families to spend outdoors, and Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo will hold its second “Fall into Fun Family Weekend” as an opportunity to enjoy warm sunny days before the onset of winter weather. Nearly 80 Scarecrows on Parade will still be on display in front of the Victorian Greenhouse.
