Beat the heat with free candy factory tour, bowling and music

It's hot out there, but don't let that stop you from enjoying some free events around the Valley.

Discover how Cerreta's  candy is made. The Cerreta candy factory is located in the heart of downtown Glendale. They offer free tours of the factory Monday through Friday. The first tour is at 10 a.m. and the other at 1 p.m. and the tours last about 30 minutes.

You can just stop in during those times. You don't need to call for reservations unless you are going with a group of 30 or more. If you want a treat after the tour, you can buy some of their chocolates, nuts or yummy popcorn, because there's a store right inside the factory.

And if you're looking for something a little more active, take the kids bowling for free!

There are bowling alleys across the country participating.

Let It Roll Bowl in Phoenix is the only location in the Valley playing.

Now that the kids have had their fun, it's time for the adults to relax.

The Swingtips play rock music and they are performing at Wild Horse Pass Hotel and Casino Friday night at 8 p.m.

The best part is it's indoors at the Ovations Live Showroom.

You don't need tickets but you must be 18 years or older to attend.
