Welcome to another edition of the Cuse Cheap Presents: Free Stuff Friday. Let's not waste any time doing an introduction because as the title suggests, this is a list of free upcoming events in the Syracuse/CNY area.
Onondaga Cup & Lakefest
This Saturday (July 16th) at Willow Bay (Onondaga Lake Park) there will be fun for all featuring a kid's zone, the world's largest rubber duck named Cusey, music, food and drinks and the main event, a regatta, The event begins at 11 am and is scheduled to end around 9:30 pm.
Now as a heads up, this is a free event but there is also a ticket portion available if you are interested (tickets are $125 a piece but offer a lot more music, food and drink options). For information on the event itself, click here and you are interested in purchasing a ticket for the Pavilion portion, click here.
If you live or travel near Bridgeport or East Syracuse, you probably know of William's Restaurant. Here is a poster for an upcoming live band they have scheduled to play for them for free.
If you are in the mood for a bit of the Christmas season early or just like a crafty family friendly event, here is a fun one next Saturday at the Syracuse Moose Lodge #625 on Milton Ave.
Gaming For Adults With Special Needs
The great folks at the Liverpool Library are holding this event Friday 7-15 from 10am-11:30am and will include Wii and board games in their Carman Community Room. If you are interested, here is the link for more information on this event.
Onondaga County Public Library Schedule Of Events
So instead of posting several different events the Onondaga County Public Library is offering, I am just going to post the link here. With the kids out of school or maybe you just enjoy various different activities, this list is sure to help you out this summer. Some of these are things from Story Time to Yoga For Everyone or Tai Chi or their Technology Camps plus a whole lot more.
Everson Museum Of Art Movie Series
As first reported by Katrina Tulloch on syracuse.com, the Everson Museum of Art will feature a free movie series this summer. Here is Katrina's story if you're interested in the schedule that includes the film Frozen and the reason I put that song in your head today. :)
Canandaigua Art & Music Festival
Friday-Sunday July 15-17th, the Canandaigua Art & Music Festival will take place in historic downtown Canandaigua along the sidewalks of Main Street. This event will feature music, art and food vendors and you can get all the information from their website here.
Trash To Treasure Sale and Beef Barbecue
This last one I am adding because this is the church I grew up in. On Saturday July 16th, the Bridgeport United Methodist Church is holding this event from 8:30 am- 2 pm. The church is located on the corner of Route 31 & North Road and admission is free but the beef barbecue is $9 and starts serving at around 11 am.
