Attend Free Summer Community Events

This weekend, we attended Celebrate Hillsboro, an annual summer event provided by the businesses and city of Hillsboro, Oregon. There was live music, bouncy castles and slides for the kids, biking and futsal events, food and craft vendors, as well as an extended Farmers Market. At noon, there an attempt to break the Guinness world record for most people yo-yoing at the same time (I think we did it!). Best of all, it was entirely free (except for the snowcones and snacks the kids "needed").


There are tons of free or cheap events throughout the summer month for all ages. We have an art walk on the first Tuesday of every month, weekly farmer's markets in different locations around the city, free kids programs at the local parks, outdoor movies on Thursday nights, and on and on. Later this summer, we are looking forward to going to the Washington County Fair. It is shaping up to be a fun and frugal summer!

I don't get out much, but I was able to attend a performance of "Annie Get your Gun" earlier this summer. They "passed the hat" and concessions were offered, but there was no admission fee. Free or nearly so is great!
