It's no surprise that another snow storm is headed this way over the weekend -- the surprise will be whether it's 2 inches or 20. But that's not until later Sunday, so get out and enjoy the weekend in Fairfield while you can. Here are some suggestions:

For teens who wouldn't be caught dead going to the prom, this may be an enticing alternative -- the Zombie Prom, where they can party with the undead Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Fairfield Public Library, 1080 Old Post Road. Prom-inspired zombie costumes are encouraged, and the event will include "twisted" games and activities. Admission is free, but registration is required. Call 203-256-3160 or visit www.fairfieldpubliclibrary.org

A free piano recital by award-winning pianist Steven Lin will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Pequot Library, 720 Pequot Ave. Admission is free for families, but those attending without children are asked to make a donation. For more information, call 203-938-3843 or visit www.musicforyouth.net

Don't be jealous that your friends have plans Saturday, head over to the Old Post Tavern, 1418 Post Road to catch the band, Green Eyed Lady at 10 p.m. Call 203-292-8631 for more information.

Wondering what the future holds? Visit the Psychic Fair on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Fairfield Motor Inn, 417 Post Road. Admission is free. Visit www.ctpsychics.com or call 203-470-1806 for more information.

The town isn't the only one celebrating its 375th anniversary in 2014 -- so is First Church Congregational (in fact, the congregation was the "first" founded by the town's settlers) and they're hosting the Chamber Orchestra of New York to help. The orchestra will perform the U.S. premiere of the 1744 Alessandro Scarlatti Concerto for Harpsichord No. 3 at 4 p.m. Sunday at the church, 148 Beach Road. Tickets are $20, $10 for students, and include a post-concert wine-and-cheese reception. Visit www.firstchurchfairfield.org for tickets and information.
