Looking for something to do with the kids that doesn’t break the bank? Get them off the sofa and into a pair a bowling shoes.

This summer, the national program Kids Bowl Free is offering free games of bowling for up to six children per family.

Kids Bowl Free is designed by bowling centers to give back to the community and provide a safe, secure and fun way for kids to spend time this summer.

Children younger than 15 are eligible for two free games a day, all summer long, courtesy of the participating bowling centers. You may bring your own bowling shoes if you wish or rent shoes at the bowling center.

Kids Bowl Free has partnered with the Gainesville Bowling Center located at 2317 Browns Bridge Road in Gainesville and Stars and Strikes at 133 Merchant Square in Cumming, to offer free bowling through Aug. 31. The games can be bowled seven days a week during selected times.

To participate in the program, log on to and create an account. Passes are emailed for each enrolled child every Sunday for the upcoming week.

There is no admission. For more information, call 866-798-4502 or visit
