Freefall Baltimore for Young Children

I am excited that Freefall Baltimore is coming up. It is a chance to try out a variety of cultural events in the Baltimore community in October, all for free.


Although they use an icon to identify Kid-Friendly events on their website, not all of those looked interesting for young children. So, after sorting through them, here are the events I thought looked interesting for kids under 5. (Sadly, no dance performances.) This is just my summary of it; go to Freefall Baltimore for all of the details on the events, the locations, and how to obtain free passes when necessary, in addition to all of the other events.

I added most of these into the Event Calendar above, so check back here when October rolls around to see if any fit into your schedule.

I'm glad you appreciate the post.
I didn't organize the DIYfest, though. We did enjoy attending it.
It's so good to have help canning, making the hours go faster. Last year I was the recipient of a windfall of apples from an untended orchard -- 90 lbs. It took 3 of us 10 hours one day to can them all. Boy was it worth it though. The applesauce lasted us until April.
