Frugal Weekend Entertainment Option #1
It’s Fall Festival Time! Have a Safe and Fun Halloween!
It’s that time of year…hay rides, kids dressed up as their favorite characters, and enough candy to keep every dentist in business! I love fall.
Are you looking for a fun and safe way to celebrate the weekend’s fall festivities with your family? Lots of churches, schools, and businesses in the community have put together fun festivals with safe places to trick or treat and play games.
A few FREE suggestions:
Central Market Stores, Saturday ~ October 31
Fort Worth Location • 2-5 p.m. (4651 West Freeway)
South Lake Location • 3-5:30 p.m. (1425 E. Southlake Blvd)
Start out at the main entrance and grab a map, then wind your way through the store, stopping at each Scavenger Hunt station to get a treat! Once you’ve scavenged all there is to hunt, make your way out to the patio for the Bean Bag Toss, Cookie Decorating, Cake Walk and Costume Parade. They’ll have prizes galore and tons of fun for the kids! More details here.
Bass Pro Shops, Saturday, Friday & Saturday ~ October 30-31
Grapevine Location (2501 Bass Pro Drive)

Frugal Weekend Entertainment Option #2
Dress Up Like a Burrito & Get a FREE Burrito from Chipotle!
Saturday, October 31, 6pm to closing
This makes me laugh. If you will dress like a burrito (OR taco bowl OR salad) and head to Chipotle, you’ll get a free Burrito on October 31st. I think the real entertainment will be “people watching” at Chipotle!
I’m still trying to figure out how you dress like a burrito/taco bowl/salad. If you have any ideas, please share in the comments section of this blog post!
