Conn. (WTNH) – Looking for weekend activities? We have eight ideas for you!

Fair season is in full swing, so, head to the annual Chester Fair, a beloved event with livestock and animal shows, great rides, baking contests, and tons of food.

And, find livestock shows, cover bands, a kids’ playland, and rides at the annual Brooklyn Fair, the oldest continuously active agricultural fair in the country.

Onto the annual Terryville Lions Country Fair, founded in 1948, featuring fireworks, an antique tractor show, racing pigs, farmyard animals, and exciting events.

After a three-year hiatus, the Plainville Fire Company Hot Air Balloon Festival is back with a car show, a craft fair, and beautiful balloons on display.
