Pre-Inventory Sale | Recycled Books | Free | Fri-Sun, 9am-9pm
Bring the youngins and come pilfer through piles of previously loved books, records and CD’s to find hidden gems and a whopping discount. You’ll be helping the staff not have to count so many items for their inventory, and you’ll be helping yourself pay for your kids’ college (or bail money, whatever) with all the money you save.
Made in Denton County | Courthouse Museum on the Square | Free | Fri-Sun All Day
Kids are curious about everything, especially how and where things are made. This ongoing exhibit features curiosities like semi-trucks, eco-friendly packaging, beer, and brats (both your kids and of the sausage variety).

I Am Eleven | Campus Theater | Free | 10am
Ever wonder what other kids’ lives are like in other parts of the world? This family friendly film is part of the Thin Line Film Festival and is free, but first-come, first-served, so get there early.
Bikes and Beer | DCTA Station to Audacity Brew House | Free | 1pm
This 1.5 mile family bike ride is Denton’s way of welcoming the new bike and pedestrian coordinator to our community. Oh, and there’s locally brewed beer for the adults, as well.
TWU Gymnastics | Kitty Magee Arena | Children under 12 Free | 6pm
If you’ve never seen live gymnastics, you are missing out! It’s the most action-packed event of the week. This Saturday the Pioneers meet Centenary. Bonus: Free TWU Gymnastics string bag to first 200 people! That’ll come in handy for those TWU t-shirts you know you’re going to purchase.
