FREE… one of the sweetest words parents can hear, especially when it’s high summer and entertaining the kids starts to add up. That’s why each event in today’s Weekend Roundup will cost you absolutely nothing to get in the door, and some even throw in free food for good measure!
Thursday from 4:30PM – 8:30PM If the rain holds out and you’ve never been to a Sidewalk Arts Stroll, today is the day to go. There are only four of these each summer, and it coincides with the Greene Street Market just a block away off the square in downtown Huntsville. Vendors offer artwork and handcrafted goods and the kids will delight in the variety of performers always present. The event is free and so is meter parking after 5:30PM.
Thursday from 6:00PM – 8:00PM: Sweet CeCe’s Frozen Yogurt in the Village of Providence is under new management, and are celebrating with a Grand Re-Opening and free yogurt for their guests. Be sure to try my favorite if it’s offered – strawberry cheesecake swirl topped with Fruity Pebbles, and tell them Rocket City Mom sent you!
Friday from 3:00PM – 7:00PM: Jump To It Clubhouse in Madison is also celebrating their customers by throwing them a luau-themed summer celebration! Free is the key word – as in admission, hot dogs, and popcorn. Be sure to pack the kids’ bathing suits & towels so they can have a go at the outdoor water slides in addition to the indoor inflatables.
Saturday from 10:00AM – 1:30 PM: This FREE event is open to girls and boys ages 7-14. Kids will receive professional coaching in the techniques of Flexibility, Agility and Speed Training. Registration will begin at 10am, the event kick-off at 11am until 1:30. Free2Teach, a local organization that operates a volunteer-run resource store stocked with teaching materials and classroom supplies, will be hosting a supply drive. Parents are asked to bring a pack of paper, pack of #2 pencils, and other basic school supplies to help support local public schools.
