'Tis the season! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...but, that shouldn't mean breaking the bank so that you and your family can have a fun time. In fact, there are several events happening around the St. Cloud area that are fun, family-friendly...and my favorite 'F' word...FREE! Yes, FREE.

I can't be the only person putting myself on a budget after Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. The buyer's remorse is weighing heavy on me right now. To soften the blow a little bit, soak in the season with some of these free events. Your family will love it and memories--well, they're priceless.
