Things to do in Fairfield this weekend
Just because it's not a three-day holiday weekend, doesn't mean there isn't anything to do in Fairfield. Here's a sampler:
Pop out of bed Saturday and hop down to the first POPShop Market being held for one day only in the parking lot and warehouse at the Fairfield Theatre Co., 70 Sanford St. The market, which will feature food, merchandise and music, runs from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. For more information visit www.popshopmarket.com.
If shopping is not your thing, you can always head to the Connecticut Audubon Society Center, 2325 Burr St., and take a nature walk at 10 a.m. Saturday in observance of the American Hiking Society's 19th annual National Trails Day.
