Events & Entertainment
The annual Western Street Breakfast is coming up on Wednesday, June 20th, and they’ll be serving up a breakfast of pancakes, eggs, and beverage (coffee/juice/milk) for $5, and kids five and under eat free. They’ll also have a variety of free activities for kids at the event, such as a a costume contest, petting zoo, roping the hay bale, caricature drawing, gunslinger, and trick roper! I did clarify and a breakfast purchase is not required to participate in the activities.
The Pikes Peak Jazz and Swing Society will be presenting a number of free concerts this summer in locations such as Bear Creek Regional Park and Fountain Creek Regional Park! Check out their full schedule of concerts on their website.
The North Pole will be offering free admission to dads and then to moms on two Sundays this month: on June 17th (Father’s Day), dads get in free and then on June 24th, moms get in free! (I think this is a belated Mother’s Day gift, as they weren’t open until after Mother’s Day this year.)
If you are looking for more North Pole discounts, I know they also just published a coupon in one of those advertisement magazines, and there’s also a coupon for $3 off admission on their website, though you may not necessarily be able to combine these offers.
The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum will be having special events for families this summer: a “Sensing History” self-guided tour that uses your five senses, story times, and other fun experiences on select days in June and July! See the full schedule here.
The annual Navy Federal Family Movie Night will take place at Memorial Park on Saturday, June 23rd! They’ll be showing Despicable Me 3 at dusk, but they’ll have free activities like face painting, inflatables, and other games starting at 7 PM.
