#FreeStuffFriday Strikes Back
Ladies and gentlemen...boys and girls...children of all ages...I present to you another edition of #FreeStuffFriday. Without further ado, here is this weeks list.
Beak and Skiff Porch Party
Friday night (tonight) at 6pm at the Beak & Skiff Apple Orchard is a porch party featuring local band Small Town Shade (the band in the video at the top of this post). I am a huge fan of the beautiful scenery as well as their tasty apples and cider. If the weather is not appealing today or you are just too busy but would love to check out other events at their facility, here is a link to some stuff they have scheduled.
You can also hear Small Town Shade at Muddy Waters in Baldwinsville the following night according to tour dates on the band's website, where you can also find other future dates by clicking their name in the previous paragraph.
Minions In Manlius
Don't forget to check out the free movie series at Village Center Amphitheater on Arkie Albanese Ave. in Manlius starting at dusk. This week's movie is Minions on August 16th (rain date is scheduled for August 23rd). This is free and you can bring your own blanket or chair to view the movie from as well.
Dickey's Barbecue Pit
Thank you to a friend on Twitter Jess (@girlwithapibble), I received word that Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Cortland offers free meals for kids on Sunday. I was going to save this until I could do another post solely on kid's meal deals but since it is free and it's the only one I have right now, thought I would share it here instead. The deal is for one kids meal per paid adults meal, dine-in only, 12 and under, and they must order from the Kid's Meals that is equal to or less than the amount on the paid adults meal.
And if you are there. ask about the Big Yellow Cup club which also includes other free gifts as well as other offers and being among the first to know about upcoming promotions and announcements.
2016 Hannibal Fireman's Fair & Music Show
From Thursday August 18th- Saturday August 20th, the Hannibal Fire Company presents their annual event on Rochester Street in the village of Hannibal. For those of us who grew up on field days and see these fading away, this is a chance to show we still want these events in CNY.
2016 Liverpool Is The Place Concert Series
Mondays and Wednesdays at 7pm at Johnson Park in Liverpool, the Greater Liverpool Chamber of Commerce presents free live music for the community. This weeks schedule include Joe Whiting Band on Monday and Count Blastula on Wednesday. For more information on this and other music planned, click here.
Summer Games At Sylvan Beach
Next weekend is the Summer Games at Sylvan Beach with many events scheduled. The fun takes place August 20 & 21. For more information including itinerary and tickets for events that do cost money (though they advertise free family events as well as free bar events), you can check out their Facebook page here.
Only two more events remain for the free Hanover Live event that takes place on Wednesday nights in Hanover Square. August 17th will feature the band Brick Yard Road and next week August 23rd the series closes out with Castle Creek. This is a great opportunity to enjoy some free music and local places like Maxwell's, The Evergreen Pub, and J.Ryan's among others.
