Another item for the Free (and nearly free) summer activities for kids around Richmond list:
“Kids Skate Free is a program designed to help children get out and be active in their local community by offering FREE admission to their local skating centers!”
There are two participating roller rinks in the Richmond area (see below); selected skating sessions are eligible for the program and skate rental is extra. Pick a skating center, click on the green “Register for This Skating Center” banner, fill out the form, and verify your email. Passes are emailed every Sunday night at 9PM EST for the following week. (It took about 2.5 hours for my verification email to show up)
