In the interest of making life simpler (for you, dear readers, and myself) I’ve decided to try out a truncated format for the Weekend Planner. I’m going with 5 picks and focusing on free and cheap unless there’s something super awesome happening that’s totally worth your money.

As always, I encourage you to check out our full event calendar that is growing daily and includes all types and kinds of family-fun in the North Palm Beach area. To help make it the definitive guide for area families, I encourage submissions.  When submitting an event, please keep in mind our criteria: family-friendly, open to the public, and located in North Palm Beach (again, unless it’s super awesome and worth the drive).

Don’t Forget To…
