Need something free and fun to do this summer? We’ve got you covered! Registration is now open for Kids Bowl Free, a program that offers free bowling for kids all summer long. From March 1- September 1, your kids can bowl up to two free games a day at participating Kids Bowl Free bowling alleys.

Bowling is an awesome way for your kids to experience something new, enjoy air conditioning during the hot summer days, and to burn off some energy (moms rejoice!).

The program allows kids 15 and under to participate for free, and for $29.95 you can add up to four additional adults to bowl under the Family Pass option. Where else can you find family fun on the daily for so cheap?

Shoe rentals are not included for the kids or under the family pass, but you can easily purchase a shoe pass that is good for the entire summer at your participating bowling center. Most of them are no more than $12 per person, which is a steal!

You’ll also want to make sure you check your bowling alley for Kids Bowl Free bowling times. Many times it is not available during peak bowling times, like Cosmic Bowling, but that still leaves plenty of time to practice your strikes!

Make sure you head to the Kids Bowl Free website to check for a bowling center near you, and happy bowling!
