There are plenty of free or low cost options to keep the kids entertained (and hopefully give you a few minutes to relax and rejuvenate) this summer.
Mondays and Thursdays: Free children’s movies at Rave Motion Pictures and $2 movies at Carmike Cinemas (which includes popcorn and drink). Movies start at 10am.
Tuesdays: Check out the Allen County Public Library, Artlink, Cathedral Museum, Firefighters Museum, History Center and many others. You could even make Tuesdays “field trip day” and go to a different attraction each week!
Fridays: Friday Nites Live at Jefferson Pointe. From 6:30-8:30pm enjoy live entertainment while the kids cherish the balloon art, face painting and more from Sweetcakes Entertainment. Finish the night off with dessert at Culver’s or DeBrand.
Saturdays: Rock the Plaza at the Main Library from 6pm-9pm. Dance the night away or take a blanket for a more relaxing evening. Grab a bite to eat before or after the show. If you are kid-free for the evening, check out Fort Wayne’s Nightlife scene!
Sundays: Free admission to the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. Exhibits over the summer include Infinite Mirror: American Identity, Challenging the Figure: works by Loren Olson, Gwen Gutwein: Barns of Indiana, Outside the Circle: Indiana Woodturning and Step Gently Out.
