Deals: Independence Day events, summer activities and more

Fourth of July. Believe it or not, several cities are still holding Independence Day Celebrations and fireworks. Check out our guide to 4th of July in Colorado that also details all of the city events that were canceled. 

Denver Summer Activity Guide. Amber published our annual 2020 Denver Summer Activity Guide with 150+ activities! Many indoor facilities will be opening in the coming weeks so be sure to bookmark this awesome resource. And, of course, she also listed lots of free, outdoor fun for the whole family. Be sure to also check out the Ultimate Family Vacation Guide in Colorado, all COVID-approved! 

 Five Below Opens in Denver. When my daughter and I went to New York, we liked shopping at Five Below (think Dollar Store with everything being $5 or under). There will be six Colorado locations – all appear to be opening on June 26.

 Denver Premium Outlets. Every 2nd and 4th Saturday from 12 noon to 7 p.m. through September you can shop the outlets and try great food with the Food Truck Series. Food Trucks will be safely distanced around the property and live music.

 McDonald’s Fries. Get free fries on Fridays at McDonald’s with the purchase of a dollar or more. To get the deal you need to order on the app to redeem the deal. Deal is good for one more week. Get one order per Friday through the end of June.

 Free Card Friday. You have only one more week to get a free Hallmark card on Friday. Stop by your neighborhood Hallmark store on Friday to get a free card. Send someone a little perk! But Stacy’s Hallmark on S. Colorado Blvd looks to be closing so you can score more than one free card there – up to 75% off!

Honey. I’ve written about this awesome little plug-in called Honey before but I think it warrants another mention, especially as we are ordering more and more online (or maybe it is just my street that has seen a lot more of the Amazon, UPS and FedEx trucks). This handy little plug in will scan all the available promo codes for you and save you tons of money! It will even tell you if you have the best deal already.

Camp DreamWorks. Summer camp is so much fun this year with Camp DreamWorks (and parents, a heck of a lot cheaper). DreamWorks themed activities go through each week for the duration of the virtual Camp DreamWorks (through August).  All the fun of all your favorite DreamWorks characters. Make sure to check each week for more fun like draw-alongs, dance parties, obstacle courses and more! Visit the website or facebook for more

 Fit+Rock at Dairy Block. The Dairy Block Fit + Rock outdoor group exercise classes are returning in June for FREE.  June 23 and 30 will be The Barre Code (combination of barre and isometric movement with high-energy playlist). Plus, The Maven is offering 50% off to all military veterans, active-duty military and frontline healthcare workers now – Labor Day.  To register, please visit

Target School Supplies. It’s no wonder my sister went into education, we had to stop our annual summer road-trip to get school supplies (who knew where you’d get the coolest folders?). Target already has their Crayola 24-count crayons box for just 50 cents! Glue is also just 50 cents – so if you are still into making slime, you can get some of the ingredients for cheap!

The Children’s Place Girls LeggingsChildren’s Place was always one of my favorite places to shop for my kids clothes when they were little. There were always deals and cute stuff. Girls leggings are as low as $1.99 right now (normally $12.95).

Bath and Body Works. I think this is really my happy place. I can spend hours in Bath and Body Works just smelling everything…and maybe dreaming that I really am in Waikiki (there is a scent called Waikiki). They are having their semi-annual sale. Stock up on some of your favorites now for as much as 50% off! Buy Two, Get one Free; Buy 3, Get 2 Free; Single wick candles just 2 for $20 and more!
