Free and Cheap Weekend Fun

Weekends are simply the best, but having the extra downtime doesn’t mean you need to break the bank to have a blast with your favourite people! Read on for free (and cheap) ways to spend this weekend.



Free Fun At The Library


Free family fun in Burlington


Start your weekend with The Burlington Public Library. Every weekend they welcome families to their free programs like Sat-ART-days at Alton and this weekend they’re hosting a Tulip Bulb Planting workshop at the Brant Hills branch. Or take your 6-9-year-olds to Blow Off Some Steam with STEAM activities at the New Appleby branch. All of these activities are Free!




Be Active

The Parks and Rec team always have something for you to do to be active, no matter the day. This weekend, bring your family to Family Play Fit, where you play different sports with other families and have fun. Or, send off the last bits of winter with an indoor ice skate or a shinny hockey game. City drop-ins start at about $3.50 per person, so definitely a frugal way to have some fun!




Read All About It

Join Chapters Burlington on Saturday to celebrate Earth Day, and learn about how you can Bring Back The Bees with a special Storytime, plus kids take home a packet of wildflower seeds to start your very own bee-friendly garden. You can also take in a morning storytime at Alton library or Central library. All of these activities are free, too!



Free Fun for Little Artists
