In addition to all our activities this week being family-friendly happenings throughout the vast Inland Empire, this week’s suggestions are all things you can do that are FREE! Inspired by our Inland Empire Free Summer Concerts Guide, we know that just feeding children can be extremely expensive, so here are ways to keep them entertained without spending a dime.


7/27, Free Yoga – Es-“Stretch”-O at La Volata Pizzeria in Redlands from 7:30a.m. to 8:15a.m. Yoga session is free. If you’re one who is early to rise, be sure to start your week off with a relaxing and free yoga session with Lisa Vest of Vasa the Studio. Stick around afterward for some coffee and pastries . . . the fuel you really need to get your day rockin’.



7/28, Animal Show – Summerfest “Songs of the Wild” Animal Show at Corona Public Library at 4p.m. and 7p.m. Although this event is free, tickets are required for admission. Secure your ticket at the summer reading booth 30 minutes before event start times. With one of the best summer programs for kids in the IE, Corona Public Library knows exactly what children are crazy about, and that’s animals and music!


7/29, Farmers Market – Farmers Market on the Promenade at The Shoppes at Chino Hills from 4p.m. to 8p.m. Strolling around the mall is always a fun and free event, however this mall has something even more excited to offer—a farmers market with a great assortment of fruits, veggies, snacks, baked goods, spices and more.
