It’s become a KFDC tradition to keep things simple this time of year over the big holiday weekends.  Hence, the simplified title of this post.  But just because you don’t see the detailed listings of weekend happenings, that doesn’t mean you won’t still find plenty of things to do.  The links below include loads of ideas for family activities, both holiday-inspired and just straight-up fun. You can also check KFDC on Instagram and Facebook for any updates or extra recommendations.
