This week’s Free List seems to revolve around Art, Culture and Environment. I have two art exhibit options that don’t require a trip to a museum. If you are missing the Landmark Center’s Urban Expeditions, there is a festival option for you. I also have a couple options for helping the environment while having fun as a family.
Want more? Check our Calendars for lots of ideas. Gianna has some ideas for dates (with or without the kids) this month — some are free. Speaking of free stuff, there is still time to sign up for Anne’s contest to Win Free Tickets to the State Fair until Sunday at 9 p.m.
My inbox is overflowing for this week! Some weeks are like that, so take a look! I’m sure you will find something you will like.
Don’t forget to enter to win a picture book by Debra Frasier.

In my Inbox this week is a free event for the whole family!
The Irish Fair of Minnesota is located on Harriet Island in St. Paul, and the fair is being held this weekend starting on Friday, August 8 through Sunday, August 10. Make sure you scroll to the bottom of the page to learn how you can get to the fair for free.
Maybe it’s because I’m part Irish (a teeny tiny, itty bitty bit Irish) or maybe it’s because I love the accent, but I am very partial to Ireland. I would love to visit someday and look over the hills of Dover and say, “My Bonnie Lass” or “Laddie.”
