Your turn: Have your high-school athletes had their physicals yet?
Free Physical Exams for High School Athletes
High-schoolers need physical exams before participating in sports, and Twin Cities Orthopedics wants to help. From 5-8pm on 8/9, athletes can come to Twin Cities Orthopedics in Edina to get a free physical. Those who pre-register by 8/7 for an appointment also qualify to win an iPad, and all of those receiving physicals get a free drawstring bag. (Thanks, Deal Spotter!)
Minneapolis Arts Weekend and Free Metro Transit
This weekend finds not one, not two, but three big art festivals in the Minneapolis area. The Uptown Art Fair, the Powderhorn Art Fair, and the Loring Park Art Festival are all happening this weekend. To help you get around, Metro Transit is offering an ArtPass – just print it to get free transit on selected routes serving the festival areas.
St. Paul Saints Play Day at Midway
St. Paul Saints are hosting a Play Day at Midway on Monday, 8/6, from 10am-2pm. The play day includes on-field activities, a bounce house, Mudonna appearance and more. Tickets are $5 per child, adults are free.
And don’t forget that St. Paul Saints baseball games are a lot of fun, and tend to be much less expensive than other options. For instance, a quick search of their site found $5 tickets to the game on Sunday, 8/12, a game followed by a chance for kids to run the bases and collect autographs, too.
Free Museum Admission for Bank of America Cardholders
Have a Bank of America card? It’s good for one free admission when presented with an ID this weekend, 8/4-8/5, at a handful of local museums – Mill City Museum, Fort Snelling, James J. Hill House and Minnesota History Center. The free admission is part of the Bank of America Museums On Us program.
