Sometimes bowling alleys offer free passes as part of a local or national promotion, such as the Kids Bowl Free program. Call or check the website of a local bowling alley to learn of any current promotions offering free bowling tickets.
Bowling alleys throughout the United States and Canada participate in the Kids Bowl Free program. All children below a certain age limit that live near a participating bowling alley qualify to receive two free bowling games per day during the summer months. However, the bowling hours and days depend on the particular bowling facility. KidsBowlFree.com provides a list of participating bowling alleys and hosts registration for the program.
