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).
Here are my top picks:
Bass Pro Shops – November 15th through December 24th, free Photo with Santa! Get a FREE 4×6 studio-quality photo in-store! Meet Santa and let him know what’s on your list for this year. Other photo packages and Christmas cards available for purchase and instant print at the store.
American Girl - Project Runway Inspired by BeForever™ Tour. It’s a first-ever American Girl event. For two exciting days, we will be hosting an exhibit of BeForever-inspired fashion designs as seen on a recent episode of the hit television show Project Runway. You’ll get to view a select assortment of the actual outfits from the show. The event is free and no reservations are required. But the designs will be here for only two days, so mark your calendar!
