Monday, January 15th is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, where we honor and remember the influential civil rights leader:
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
–Martin Luther King Jr. (1929–68)
And of course, many kids are off from school, many offices are closed, and many businesses offer sales – here are freebies and sales I’ve found:
Free National Park Admission
On Monday, January 15th, you can get FREE entry to national parks. It’s one of 4 fee-free days this year:
Jan. 15: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
April 21: First day of National Park Week
Sept. 22: National Public Lands Day
Nov. 11: Veterans Day
Though there is only national park in Minnesota – Voyageurs National Park in northern Minnesota – there are 400 across the nation that are free.
Free Movie Ticket to see “Marshall”
Through this Monday, January 15th, get a free movie ticket to see “Marshall” at AMC Theatres nationwide. You have to go to the box office in person between January 12th and January 15th. I recommend checking with your local AMC theatre in advance.
