If you are a parent the thought of summer looks like dollar signs. Camps, vacations, and activities get expensive quick. I found an activity that takes up a decent amount of time, that you can go to any day and is open to all ages. Did I mention it's also free?

Select bowling centers and schools around the country are participating in the first ever Kids Bowl Free program. This program is designed by bowling centers to give back to the community and provide a safe, secure, and fun way for kids to spend time this summer.

This program is currently available at Bowlocity and Colonial Lanes in Rochester. Your kids will get 2 free games a day, all summer long PLUS, up to 3 adult family members can also get two free games with the purchase of a family $36.95. Each participating bowling center has a limited amount of family passes available and when they are gone, they are gone. We don't want you to miss out. The family pass is such a great deal that using your family pass just one time all summer may save you $$$ right away... but the family pass can be used every day all summer and has a value in excess of $1500.

You do still have to pay for bowling shoes if you don't already have them but this is still one heck of a deal! It lasts May 1st through September 3rd.
