What’s better than curing your kids’ summer boredom with a day of fun at the park? When it’s free for the entire family all summer long. Thanks to the Greater Cincinnati Foundation, Smale Riverfront Park is hosting an entire summer’s worth of free family fun, from movie nights to concerts and theater performances. This week, celebrate impending summer vacations with a showing of Wreck It Ralph Friday and a performance by Wump Mucket Puppets and Cincinnati Children’s Theatre Saturday. And that’s just the beginning of the fun — the series continues through September.
7-11 p.m. Friday; 4-7 p.m. Saturday. Free. John G. & Phyllis W. Smale Riverfront Park, West Mehring Way, Downtown, cincinnatiparks.com.
