Find Your Family Fun This 4th of July 2020! We Have Tons Of Fun Inside

By Melissa Shrader Editor/Publisher Fort Collins Macaroni Kid June 28, 2020


This issue is a special edition focused on the 4th of July. Why we celebrate the holiday, Recipes, Crafts, and  what we can do to help our pets deal with the loud noises and flashes. There is plenty to keep you busy and help you have some extra time to enjoy the holiday. Make ahead meals and some great dessert ideas. I have a 4th of July guide for things to do too! 

I'm excited to help announce that the Candlelight Dinner Playhouse has opened up and is now doing shows again. If your up to it they have some great shows! Flat Stanley is one of the shows in the great line up. 

Have you ever signed up for the Kids Bowl Free or the Kids Skate Free program? Its a wonderful way to enjoy some bowling at a discount for the family and to have your kids bowl free. 

Happy 4th of July to you! 

Keep a Watchful Eye! 

The calendar will slowly begin to repopulate with in person events and we will keep virtual events too. Many of the usual events we would normally see during the summer have been canceled and will not resume again till next year. Some have just rescheduled. Keep an eye out I will be verifying events asap and regularly.  We will update you as we get information. Most updates will happen on Facebook and here. 

Online Events and Gatherings that are open to all are welcome on our calendar. Do you have a virtual class, A virtual event, Something fun for everyone?  Post it on our calendar at

Don't forget to checkout Facebook too for other events that have been popping up randomly since the State has changed the Stay at home quarantine to the Safer at home guideline.

If you have other things you want to see Mac Kid do drop me an email. If you want to partner with Mac Kid I'd love to hear from you.

Remember with any event, If the weather looks questionable, - Always check in with the event itself to be sure the event is still on! You can call or text me as well. ESPECIALLY IN SPRING AND FALL. Now that COVID has come please comply with the COVID guidelines requested by each establishment and organizer. If you have a question with their policies pleases contact them directly.

If you have the newsletter you only have part of the fun! I post on Facebook, twitter, Pinterest, Instagram with holiday and everyday crafts, recipes, special offers, contests, news and new events. (see the tabs on the right or at the bottom to visit the social site) 

Wishing you Love, Light and fun for the week (and your life) ahead! 

Stay safe, Stay healthy, Love, Live and Be Fierce for what you believe,
