Mom’s Morning in Children’s Activities

Mom’s Morning In is a fun-filled program for toddlers/preschoolers and their parents or caregivers, with two popular events each year: a Halloween Parade in downtown Darien, with trick-or-treating at merchants followed by a magic show and an Easter Egg Hunt on the sprawling great lawn of the DCA estate. Reservations are not required. Bring your infants as well!

Please see our 2019-2020 schedule and pricing below. In the event of inclement weather, the DCA follows the Darien Public Schools schedule.

Our parade is a colorful tradition! Dress up your little ones and bring a bag for trick-or-treating at the doors of local merchants along the way to Tilley Pond. Then join us for snacks and a special show with our favorite magician “The Amazing Andy.” His magical talents will amaze you and your child, and his wonderful antics, humor and sleight of hand will keep even the youngest magic enthusiasts entertained. Meet at the parking lot next to the Darien Fire Station opposite Post Corner Pizza. Read more about Amazing Andy through this link. Price: $5 per child.
