Free tickets, anyone? Hop aboard the Comp Train, Goldstar’s popular two-day promotion that features complimentary tickets to tons of fun events throughout the country.
For just 48 hours, Goldstar, the online discount ticket outlet, will be offering literally thousands of free tickets to live theater, concerts, dance, comedy, and more. And since all you pay is a tiny service fee (the amount varies depending on the event, but it’s usually just a couple of bucks), the Comp Train is a great way to discover new events in the area and treat the family, your plus-one, or even just yourself to something totally great — and totally unexpected.
Go here to see what’s free. And while you’re on the website, be sure to browse around — there are always loads of fantastic discounts on all kinds of live entertainment.
Disclosure: KidFriendly DC is an affiliate of Goldstar, which means I get a small commission on any sales generated through my blog. However, I only promote events, programs, and services, that I truly believe in and/or think would appeal to KFDC readers.
Calling all LEGO enthusiasts! BrickFair, the nation’s largest annual LEGO fan festival, is retruning to the area August 2-3. And you have a chance to win a family four-pack of tickets to the event.
BrickFair ’14 will bring together LEGO fans from across the country to showcase their amazing brick constructions, from tiny intricate works to elaborate, towering creations. Over one thousand exhibitors will be there to display their designs, along with vendors selling all things LEGOS — T-shirts, hats, mini figures, models, and more.
It’s not all just looking and buying. Visitors can get hands on in the Stay-n-Play Area chock full of bricks so you can build with and get creative. And some of the models are interactive, inviting guests to examine them even more closely (but be gentle!).
This will all take place at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Va, August 2-3 from 11am – 4pm both days. Tickets are $12/ages 4 and up, free for ages 3 and under, but right now you can get a discount through Goldstar and try to win a four-pack for your family through the giveaway.
