Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Yes, my neighbors are once again planning a bbq and we will resume the Friday night movies on the driveway. Don’t miss 75 family-friendly Memorial Day weekend events in Denver! Also, we just release our Colorado Family Vacation Guide for Summer 2021.
Mile High Flea Market. Admission is free on the last Friday of each month this summer May 28, June 25, July 30 and August 27. Enjoy farmer’s markets, stalls, shops, food and drinks as well as music. This might be a fun way for you and the family to enjoy a fun kickoff of a weekend!
Secure Vail Resorts Passes Now. It is arguably the best ski deal in Colorado for adults AND kids…and it runs out on Memorial Day. May 31, 2021, will be the last day you can lock in your Vail Resorts’ Epic Pass purchase with a $49 down payment, with the remaining balance not due until September at 20% off. And, through Memorial Day, the purchase of an Epic Pass will come with the bonus of 10 “Buddy tickets,” good for significantly discounted lift tickets for family and friends.
Free USA Flag. Ace Hardware is giving away One Million Flags. On Saturday, May 29 pop by your local Ace Hardware to get your free 8” x 12” flag (to the first 240 customers at each location).
Free Wendy’s Burger. In celebration of National Hamburger Day on Friday, May 28, you can get a free Dave’s Single or Junior Bacon Cheeseburger with any purchase using the Wendy’s app.
Dairy Block Hosting FREE Fit + Rock again. One last chance this month to shake your booty with the Barre Code (combines barre work and isometric movements with an awesome high-energy playlist) on Wednesday, May 26th at 5:30 p.m. at the Dairy Block. It is free but you will need to register in advance. To register, please visit https://dairyblock.com/events
Taco Bell Rockies Promotion. About once a week, my family and I head over to a Taco Bell to take advantage of the tacos promotion. Whenever the Rockies score seven or more runs (win or lose), the next day between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. you can get 4 tacos for just $2. You can also multiply that (get 8 tacos for $4).
Free Fishing Weekend. Now is a great time to try fishing in Colorado! The fish are starting to bite at waters all around the state. To give everyone an opportunity to get out and get some hits, Colorado Parks and Wildlife is inviting resident and nonresident anglers of all ages to participate in its annual Free Fishing Weekend on June 5 to 6. The free fishing weekend is a great way to get outside with family and friends and take advantage of Colorado’s extensive opportunities to fish for a myriad of cold and warm water fish species. Also don’t miss 25 great fishing ponds in Denver.
Harkins Theatres. For just $5, see some of the best Blockbusters of the past. They have great movies left – as these specials go through June 25. For the line-up and to get tickets and showtimes visit Harkins.com.
YMCA Summer. Two favorite locations, YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park and Snow Mountain Ranch announced their chock-full list of activities and events including archery, horseback riding, keepsakes crafting, miniature golf, tennis, fly fishing, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, guided hikes (through Rocky Mountain National Park), an on-site dog park and more depending on which location your family chooses. They even have on-site summer day camps for kids aged 3 to 17. YMCA offers different types of accommodations – certainly one to fit your family!
Denver Free Days. Free Days are back at several of our great museums thanks to SCFD funding and corporate sponsorships. Check out what Denver free days are happening this week.
