Things to do in Fairfield this weekend
No holidays. No storms (so says the National Weather Service). No problems. There still is plenty going on in Fairfield this weekend. Here's a few suggestions:
They'll be jammin' on the sands at Jennings Beach on Friday evening for the second Sand Jam dance and movie event sponsored by the Parks and Recreation Department. Dancing to a deejay's music gets underway at 6:30 p.m. in front of the beach pavilion, where refreshments will be on sale. At dusk, the movie, "Rise of the Guardians," will be screened. It's free, although Fairfield beach permits are needed to park at Jennings.
For a mellower, mature Friday evening on the town, check out singer-songwriter Paula Cole, who performs at 7:45 p.m. (doors open at 7) at the Fairfield Theatre Co., 70 Sanford St. Call 203-259-1036 or check http://fairfieldtheatre.org
Summer movie season is heating up, and you'll find lots of the big movies on screen at the Fairfield Cinemas at Bullard Square, 41 Black Rock Turnpike. Among the features on the multiplex's screens are "Despicable Me 2," "The Bling Ring," "Man of Steel" and "The Lone Ranger." For showtimes, check: http://bit.ly/14lvLWN
Join the celebration Saturday when a veteran Fairfield merchant celebrates a half-century in business: Westfair TV Audio has turned 50 and is marking the occasion with a party from noon to 5 p.m. at its store at 1961 Post Road. From the time when television sets were all furniture and a small black-and-white screen to today's wall-width digital flat-screens, Westfair has seen vast changes in electronics. Check out the latest stuff during Saturday's event. www.westfairtv.com
End the weekend on a high note with a sparking performance by the Glamour Girls at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Sherman Green gazebo, corner of Post and Reef roads. The free show is part of the Parks and Recreation summer concert series. Though storms were not in the early-weekend forecast for Sunday night, you can check park & rec's cancellation hotline if things start to change at 203-256-3144 (press 5).
