Just Putting It Out There…..Free Day at Museums and Botanical Gardens!!!


May 24 will be the first free Saturday for Cleveland Botanical Garden, Cleveland Museum of Natural History and Western Reserve Historical Society

Saturday will be an excellent day to gather up the family and head over to Wade Oval and catch up on what’s happening at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Cleveland Botanical Garden, Cleveland Museum of Art and the Western Reserve Historical Society.

Why this Saturday? Because from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., admission to all four educational and entertainment gems is free.

The free day is officially billed as Cleveland Foundation Day on Wade Oval. The foundation is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, and every month through December, the organization is presenting the community with a gift.


So bring your family and friends down to enjoy the free gift given to all!

FCBD 2013 header logo       

Free Comic Book Day, is an annual promotional effort by the North American comic book industry to help bring new readers into independent comic book stores.  Free Comic Book Day started in 2002 and is coordinated by the industry’s single largest distributor, Diamond Comic Distributors.
Free Comic Book Day is a single day – the first Saturday in May each year – when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE* to anyone who comes into their stores. *Check with your local comic book shop for their participation and rules.

Some posts from YouTube from those who have experienced Free Comic Book Day and those who haven’t:

Let me guess, the catch is that you can only get the least popular floppies and it’s probably one per person. No trades, no hardcovers, nothing too new either.

yes, but some branches give 3 free comics per customer

I’ve never run into any restrictions, except maybe on number of copies. But it’s fully expected that you’ll grab at least one of each. Also, it isn’t just free random comics. The comics that are free are specially made for that day, which includes a lot of indie stuff, and stuff from major publishers.
So the consensus is different…some comic book stores require you to buy one to get one free and others give as many as 3 free comic books per customer.  Please check out the link above and contact your local retailer to find out what their specific rules are.
