Seize the Deal Lawton: Half Price to see 580 Rollergirls

Seize the Deal Lawton has a fun deal this morning that will get you half-price tickets to see the 580 Rollergirls right here at the Great Plains Coliseum. The Back to School Bash bout will take place Saturday, August 20th but you can buy your tickets now from Seize the Deal and get them for only $5! I’ve read that they’ve had to turn people away at the door so don’t wait until the last-minute to get your tickets and get them a great price if you purchase them by Midnight 8/4 from Seize the Deal Lawton. This Deal actually has a 10 purchase limit, much higher than most Seize the Deals. Come out and support Lawton’s newest local sports team!

Did I mention Kids 12 and under get in FREE!

Free Event Lawton: Movies in the Park 7/22 and 7/29

Have you attended a Movies in the Park event before? I haven’t yet, but my oldest son loves the movie ‘The Last Airbender’ and so we’re going to take some lawn chairs and go enjoy a fun evening outside (which doesn’t happen often with this heat!)

This will be held at Elmer Thomas Park Festival Pad on Friday, July 22nd at 9:30pm with the movie ‘The Last Airbender’. You can also see ‘Open Season 3’ on July 29th. Both events are free and you are welcome to call 580.581.3400 for any additional information.

Thanks Nan for sharing!

JBF Lawton Consignment Sale

Just Between Friends is coming to Lawton Comanche County Fairgrounds September 23-25th and now is the time to sign up for any and all Volunteering positions.

I went to my first JBF sale in Tulsa the year I was pregnant with my most recent bundle of joy and managed to get a Bassinet for $20, Car Seat for $15, Bouncy Chair for $8, lots of clothes (maternity and baby), toys, and various other unique finds in great shape and at a great price. 

This year I want to help out and get a chance to shop before the public! You can too by signing up for emails and using your personal consignment number to set up your Volunteer schedule. You can also sign up to sale some of your own unwanted items.

Today (7/15) is the first day of Fall Sign-up but hurry before all the good positions are gone and be sure to check back for more details as they become available. I plan to keep you informed of dates, times, and last-minute openings if at all possible so stay tuned.

Just go to JBF Lawton to sign up as a Vendor, Volunteer, or Shopper. Don’t miss out on this great sale. I hope to see a gathering and selection as large as my first JBF visit!

Kid’s Clay and Art Camp in Lawton Oklahoma

I like living out here so far from the hustle and bustle of a big city but some days it does get a little redundant and I wish there were more things for the kids and I to do at an affordable price. The bowling coupons we find are never valid for any locations near us nor are the $1 Kids Movie Specials valid at either of our theaters so it’s nice to come across something for kids so close to home.

I came across an event promoting A Pigment of Your Imagination’s Kid’s Clay and Art Camp and didn’t realize we had a place like this here in Lawton. This looks like a fun way for your kids to spend a day or even week with price specials that include sibling discounts. It does seem a little on the expensive side but, depending on what kind of handmade masterpiece you get to treasure for years to come, it might just be worth it and the kind of thing the kids need to get out of the house and stretch those creative muscles again while school is out. Also, it’s indoors, always a plus in 108 degree weather!

Read about the Kid’s Clay and Art Camp HERE.

Read about other July Events including an Ice Cream Social to support the New Directions Women’s Shelter located in Lawton HERE.

Have you been? What did you think? I would love to hear your thoughts on this event and hope that you share any other kid friendly events you might have participated in and found enjoyable as well as budget savvy.
