Frugal Friday~ Summer fun on Small change~

Well, I figure that a Frugal Friday is a good time to post some frugal summer fun ideas. (For more Frugal ideas check out Frugal Friday at

I will continue to add to this list as I find more:

Summer Reading Programs:

Check out your local library.... most of them have summer reading programs with fun prizes, etc.

Read 8 books and get a free pick

Regal Entertainment
AMC Theaters
National Amusements


Music Festivals (searchable database)

Check out your local minor league baseball team for fun and inexpensive family entertainment!
Local to me are Lowell Spinners Games~ Tickets are $5-$8 dollars, so not free, but definitely cheap! ☺This just in~ (Thanks the gals at for pointing this out) Kraft has teamed up with minor league baseball for this promotion: Buy 1 ticket get 1 ticket free on Tuesdays, at participating ballparks.

Boston Area Activities if you are local to Boston, check this out. If you live somewhere else, you can search for local activities, check out your local newspaper "Calendars"

Hope this helps you especially if you are planning a frugal "Stay-cation" this year...

Great ideas. I was bummed that no theaters in my area offer the $1 movies! Thanks for the links though! Have a great weekend.
