Freebie Friday: 3 free events this weekend to entertain the whole family

It's Friday which means it's time to find out what you can do for free around the Valley.

Enjoy the gorgeous weather while it lasts.

Head over to Central High School's ball field Saturday, March 1, from 10 .a.m. to 1 p.m. for the Color Canalscape project.

The goal of the project is to transform the mile of Grand Canal between Seventh Street and Central Avenue, and on Saturday you will get a peek at some of the student art that will fill the canal.

There will also be lots of activities to keep the whole family entertained, including dance and music performances and there will even be bounce houses.

Also you can take a walk or pedi-cab ride to get a full view of the project.
