JANUARY FREE & CHEAP EVENTS (January 8 – January 10, 2016)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello Everyone.
I hope you had a great week.
The calendar is very QUIET this week. I think it is because people are trying to get back into the swing of things.

If you do not see any events happening in your city I recommend these activities:

• Visit your local library
• Check your local community centre for public swimming or skating hours
• Visit a book store
• Visit a pet store
• Go to a McDonalds or Burger King Playland (it’s free)
• Visit an indoor playground

Have a great weekend!!!
