We all look for deals, and especially during the holidays.
Here are a couple at Lakewood Ranch:
The good folks at Peace Presbyterian Church, 10902 Technology Terrace, are offering a peaceful shopping day for parents 2-6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15.
The church, located off Lakewood Ranch Boulevard between S.R. 64 and S.R. 70, will be providing care for kids in grades K-5.
Games, crafts, music and healthy snacks are planned to give parents time to shop or enjoy a peaceful afternoon.
The cost is $5 per child and the adult caregivers all have been background checked.
Information and reservations: 941-753-7778.
Now here is something a little unusual and free, to boot:
Taylor Morrison hosts free carriage rides to the public 4-6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, at 5235 Esplanade Blvd., Lakewood Ranch. Esplanade is located north of S.R.70.
Holiday music, drinks and snacks will be offered afterwards.
