21. Attend Free Community Events

Summertime means community festivals, street fairs, and celebrations – most of which are free. Take advantage of these fun events by gathering a group of friends together to peruse craft fairs or sample tasty treats. You don’t have to spend any money, but if you see a beautiful hand-painted teapot that you can’t live without, you’re welcome to splurge a little.

Many free community events include music or movies. Davis, California hosts “Movies in the Park” all summer long. The city erects a giant projection screen and invites the community to bring their lawn chairs and sleeping bags to Central Park for a free movie.
