NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- New Canaan Nature Center's 47th Annual Fall Fair is this Saturday, Oct. 22, featuring a wide variety of activities.

"Experience pony rides, crazy maze, carnival games, bungee jump, zip line, human hamster-ball racing, apple sling shots, pumpkin decorating and so much more," organizers said.

"Great food, beverages and baked goods will satisfy hungry appetites as children and families listen and dance to the music."
