2013 SCFD FREE Days

Check out the great FREE opportunities in and around Boulder. Here is a list of the big ones–All the big ones are in Denver but there are smaller locations that offer FREE Days through SCFD such as the Colorado Railroad Museum, the Boulder History Museum, the Longmont Museum, and the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art.

I always list these free events on my weekly update which comes out on Fridays. A permanent link to the 2013 FREE Days can be found on Boulder Families’ Website under What To Do In & Around Boulder.
