All weekend, see Jersey Boys at the Shubert Theatre. The award winning show – about Franki Valli and The Four Seasons – features a dynamic story and incredible music.

Both Saturday and Sunday, ride a vintage train to the Danbury Railway Museum‘s pumpkin patch for some seasonal fun. Children under 24 months receive free admission.
On Saturday, conquer the dark with an exciting moonlight zip line tour at Empower Leadership Sports and Adventure Center. Experience treetops under the moon and stars.
