More last minute free events

So I was driving on the freeway and noticed a billboard saying Free, which caught my eye so I glanced quickly and saw what was free and where. I did my double check on the website of the place and it was confirmed. The M Resort has free Dive-in Movies and their first one is June 8th and it is Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The doors open at 8 PM. Their next free event night is June 10th and that is called Beers, Gears, and Bikinis Car Show. They also offer free admission to locals with their local ID.
http://www.themresort.com/entertainment/pool

I also found out after my last blog post that this Saturday and Sunday Springs Preserve is having free admission day to celebrate their birthday.

Free Fishing Day in Nevada and National Parks

On June 10th it is free fishing day in Nevada.

Here is the link for families that have 4th graders to get free entrance into the National Parks

Places to stay cool

I know I try to utilize this blog as an informational blog for inexpensive/free things to do in the Las Vegas Valley and some things are nationwide, but I feel the need to also inform the readers of other options that I come by even though they might cost more. I do feel the local libraries and recreation centers are awesome places to spend time all year long, I know it can be difficult to keep track of the events happening at them and registering for the events in time. There are summer camps available at different churches and facilities, those are not easy to find as there are many organizations in this diverse valley. In no particular order (mainly in the order I find them) here is a list and links:

Mom Meet group sampling of Melt Probiotic Spread

I was given the opportunity to sample with a group of moms Melt Probiotic Spread. I found it at Sprouts Farmer's Market. We tried it on some yummy muffins, whole grain bread, and a baguette. The muffins' flavors over powered the spreads flavor, not that there is one, but it was great to spread onto the crumbly muffins. It was easy to spread and is a great alternative to butter. Everyone that tried it liked it, even the kids. I don't go to Sprouts often so I can't say I'd buy it instead of the butter I buy now because it's not offered where I usually shop. If it was sold where I usually shop I would consider purchasing it instead of what I currently buy. This is some of us trying it.
