Some Good (FREE) Things Going On

*Savoy 16 movie theater has started its free weekend kid movies this weekend. All show are free for all and begin at 10am and 11am (there is a 15 min intermission on each show). Be sure to get there early for the more popular movies (e.g. Shrek 3).

*I was pretty sure I read that Good Neighbor Day is on the 12th (but I can't find it to confirm...anyone?). Blossom Basket florist as well as some others in town are giving away dozens of roses with the promise that you will give them out to your friends and neighbors in appreciation. Get there early to participate....its runs on a first come, first serve basis.

*On Friday, head out to Meadowbrook Park from 530-730pm and listen to local jazz artists play as you walk or ride the trails.

*On Saturday, pack up and go to Eisner Park from 4-830pm for some free fun and food including inflatables, a movie, ice cream, popcorn, hot dogs, and yard games.
*What to do on Sunday mornings...when nothing is open and your kids are up? Head out to Anita Purves/Busey Woods from 730-9am for Sunday Morning Bird Walks. Program runs through October.
*The new Atlanta Bread Company on Neil hosts its Grand Opening this week including Wednesday's Kid Day...free kid's meal with adult meal purchase and Sally the Clown from 5-7pm. Each days has a different special.
*Krannert host its Wall to Wall Guitar Festival all week long. There are many free events to enjoy (however, the Dan Zane's concerts are all sold out).

*The Champaign Public Library begins their new reading programs this week. Take your kids on a jungle adventure through reading. And read some books yourself and you might win a local gift certificate.

Good Neighbor day already happened, it was last Wednesday. It was fun, I got flowers for everyone at work.

I wish we could make it to ABC for the kid's night but that night is the start of Rosh Hashanah! Oh well.

And guess what ... we got a call this morning that we got tickets for Dan Zanes!!! Will definitely blog about that later.

Like HP said, great post, we love free!
