Kidsbowlfree.com is a free summer bowling program. Suburban Lanes in Suburban Plaza is the location. Register your kids online and they get to bowl 2 free games every day of the summer, even weekends. You only have to pay for shoe rental. For $24.95, you can add the family pass to include up to 4 adults who also receive 2 games per day all summer! It's a fantastic deal, and a fun way to stay cool this summer! It goes until August 30!
