Let's get the weekend started on a good note. Here are some things I found for you to do this summer for free.
If you have any kids under 17 years old that like to play golf, you may want to cash in on this freebie. The City of Phoenix is offering "Kids Play for Free" program. All three Valley City of Phoenix nine hole golf courses are allowing kids under the age of 17 to play golf for free all summer long. The city is offering this freebie until August 31st. Your kids 17 years older younger can play anytime, all day long. But they will need to be accompanied by a paying adult.

Mark this on your calendar. Every first Friday of the month until September 7th you can go see a movie for free at City Center of City North. The movies shown are kid friendly. The next free movie is on July 6th. It is a DreamWorks animation called "How To Train Your Dragon". Also there will be pre- party entertainment indoors and this will start at 7pm. Radio Disney will be there along with dancing, singing and giveaways. Then the featured movie will start at 8pm outside. So make sure to bring chairs and some water.
