Remember the bowling birthday parties, gutter balls, and the thrill of a strike? Now you can expose your kids to the joy of bowling for free! Local bowling alleys are offering kids aged 15 and younger (some centres have a younger age limit) the opportunity to bowl 2 games PER DAY for FREE! (You’ll just have to rent shoes.) All you need to do is register for the bowling alley you prefer. Times and dates vary by location.

Below we’ve listed the specific details for each of our local alleys; you can visit their website for a list of lanes all over Canada. You can also add an optional Kids Bowl Free Family Pass so parents can join in the fun all summer long too! Have a blast — and try to stay out of the gutters.

Visit the Kids Bowl Free website for more details on the program.
