Jacksonville families can enjoy free activities for kids during 'Kids Free November'

Parents, get the kids ready for some free fun! A dozen businesses are offering special deals all month long.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Local businesses are helping families save money this holiday season with Kids Free November.

Here’s The Buzz:

Several local businesses are participating in Visits Jacksonville’s Kids Free November, offering special deals all month long.

“Every year we participate in Kids Free November because we believe it’s important for the community to see what we have to offer,” said Vanessa Davis, The Ritz Theatre and Museum Business Development Manager.

All month long, kids will get in free at the Ritz with the purchase of an adult ticket. 

Davis says it’s a great way to show kids a piece of Jacksonville history.

“They can learn about James Weldon Johnson, his brother Johns Rosamond Johnson, what life use to be like here. It’s just a really good time to step back in time and realize how important this area was and how important Jacksonville is to North East Florida,” Davis said.

When you're done at the museum, you can head down the street to Sweet Pete’s.

“We have candy activities, classes, parties and field trips, and we also have one of the largest candy selections in the Southeast," said founder Peter Behringer, who said kids will get free gummy kabobs this month.

“The selection of gummies they can kind of put on a skewer, and it’s fun for kids too. It’s a little something extra for them,” Behringer said.

Behringer said it’s giving families a reason to get out of the house and out having fun.

“Especially in these times when things are so bad everywhere, to have a place where people can come still and have fun,” Davis said. “We’re always trying to give something for people to do and enjoy time with their friends and family, and I think that’s especially important now.”
