FREE Weekend Family Fun and Activities Round-Up!

Looking for some free family fun this weekend?  Here is a round up of free activities and events.  It’s always a good idea to check with your local store before going to make sure that they are participating (especially if you’ve got a drive).

My top pick for this weekend is the Halloween Events at Bass Pro Shops!  My kids LOVE their events!
