Freimann Family Thursdays

The Freimann Family Thursday series kicks off tomorrow night, June 5, 2008 in downtown Freimann Square.  From an email sent by the Downtown Improvement District:

Are you finding trips to the lake becoming harder to justify at $4.20 per gallon? Finding it more difficult to go out to eat with escalating food prices? Tired of the average movie experience for a family costing well beyond $50? Wouldn’t it be great if there was just one thing that was FUN AND FREE?

Please welcome the return of Fort Wayne’s favorite FREE family activity, Freimann Family Thursdays presented by Comcast!
