Let’s be honest, where we live things can get expensive really fast. So it’s nice when businesses offer summer discounts for kids. I’ve compiled a list of the things I know about, but please add in the comments if there are other opportunities that you know of!

Movies

  • The Boro at Tysons: $6.50 matinees on Tuesdays
  • Summer Movie Clubhouse: $1.50 movie tickets on specific movies each Wednesday throughout the summer (Scoob!, Sing 2, Paw Patrol, Tom & Jerry, Peter Rabbit 2, Clifford).
  • Regal Fairfax Summer Movie Express: $2 movies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays through the summer.
  • Mosaic Films in the Park: Free movies every Thursday at 7 p.m. on the big screen through August 25.
  • Tysons Outdoor Family Movie Nights: A 7 p.m. start time on the last Friday of each month (Cruella, Honey I Shrunk the Kids, Raya and the Last Dragon).
  • Starlight Cinema: Drive-in cinema with free movies on Saturday evenings at 7 p.m. in August only (Luca, Encanto, Sing 2, The Mitchells vs. The Machines).

Food

  • Cocoa Vienna has $1 days for special treats: Monday Chocolate Dipped Pretzel, Tuesday Chocolate Dipped Strawberry, Wednesday “Deal of the Day”, Thursday Chocolate Dipped Frozen Banana, Friday Chocolate Dipped Oreo

Sports

  • Bowling: Bowlero has a summer pass where kids can bowl 3 games everyday for 1 price (check the locations as they have different pricing, which includes shoe rental).
  • Potomac Nationals Game in Fredericksburg has $2 Tuesdays plus other promotions, Fireworks Fridays, and other fun events.
  • Free Baseball Games: Follow the Ripken Collegiate Baseball League games at South County High School.
  • NVCL College League also has free baseball games at Madison HS, Waters Field, and Westfield HS.

Reading

  • Summer Reading programs offered through Fairfax County public libraries. Once the kids collect 10 badges (explore what that means), they can collect prizes for finishing the program!
  • Barnes and Noble also has a reading program where kids read 8 books and they can pick a free book on a specific list based on grade.
