Phoenix Children’s Museum ~ Free Admission First Friday Night of the Month


You can get FREE admission to the Phoenix Children’s Museum the first Friday of each month. That’s this Friday, August 1st, from 5 pm -9 pm. Target sponsors the event. No coupon is needed.

We’ve never been there, but I hear it can be crowded on Fridays. Please leave a comment if you have any additional feedback or advice for anyone.

The Museum is easily accessible from I-10 via the Washington Street and 7th Street exits. We offer free on-site parking. Take the Free Dash Shuttle or take the Metro Light Rail! If riding the Rail, exit at the 3rd Street/Washington station (westbound) or 3rd Street/Jefferson station (eastbound). It is a short walk north on 7th Street to the Museum. Enter through the historic entrance on the west side of the building, adjacent to 7th St.

A comment from BMB: Super busy on first Friday. Parking is hard unless you are there right on time.  (Thanks, BMB!)

Free Backpacks at AZ McDonalds 2014 (State-Wide) ~ Saturday, July 26th & Paidia Academy (only 16th St. & Baseline)


You have two shots at free backpacks on Saturday, July 26th.  The first one is state-wide, at participating McDonald’s locations.

McDonald’s Backpack Saturday: July 26
McDonald’s restaurants across greater Phoenix, Yuma and Northern Arizona will give away 25,000 free backpacks beginning at 8 a.m. on Saturday, July 26, during Backpack Saturday, an event created by local McDonald’s owner/operators to help thousands of Arizona children get ready for school! 

The first 100 children (accompanied by parents) who visit their local McDonald’s restaurant will receive a FREE backpack (excludes Wal-Mart and shopping mall McDonald’s locations). Children will also receive a FREE Go-GURT Low-Fat Strawberry Yogurt in celebration of McDonald’s new Happy Meal choice.


The rep assured me about the locations, when I asked . . .  “All McDonald’s restaurants (except shopping mall and Wal-mart locations) in the following counties are participating in McDonald’s Backpack Saturday next Saturday, July 26: Maricopa, La Paz, Mohave, Yavapai, Coconino, Gila, Navajo, Apache, Graham, Pinal and Yuma.”



I saw this on Food City’s Facebook page a few days ago.  I’ll give you a reminder later, but wanted to let you plan, if you want to.

We will be having a Back to School Event on Saturday, July 26 from 8 a.m. to 12 Noon, at Paideia Academy in Phoenix (16th Street and Baseline). During this FREE event, we will have the Phoenix Fire Department offering immunization shots, information of Child Carseat Safety, Smoke Alarm Program and FREE Backpacks!

I don’t know any other details than this.  Hope it’s a good event!
