Free Bowling All Summer

Huikko’s in Buffalo is once again participating in the summer Kids Bowl Free program. Registration is now open, and coupons are good from May through August. The free bowling is for kids age 15 and under, and all the adults in the family can participate for a one-time payment of $25.
You must pay for shoe rental, which can add up quickly, so if you plan to bowl frequently, borrowing or buying shoes is helpful.
You must sign up on-line, no walk-ins.

Brunswick Lanes also are offering one free game daily, to students up to age 18. There are only 4 Brunswick bowling alleys in MN, all in the metro area. You can find them here:
