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 three popular events each year: a Halloween Parade in downtown Darien, with treat or treating at merchants followed by a magic show; a special holiday visit from Santa in the historic DCA mansion, 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.

Mom’s Morning In Calendar: 2019 – 2020

October 25

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.


April 10 (Good Friday)

Gather your Easter baskets and come out for an Easter Egg Hunt on the front lawn of the DCA! This annual event is a great way for children to get into the spirit of the holiday. Please come early, as the Easter Egg Hunt starts at 10:00am sharp and takes only a few minutes. A special appearance by the Easter Bunny makes this a wonderful morning. Price: $20 cash per car.
Parking at the DCA is limited, carpooling is encouraged.

In the event of inclement weather, a cancellation of the egg hunt will be announced on our DCA website, e-blast, and voicemail greeting that morning.
