I love reading the http://nepa.nl/our-staff/ Community Calender in the Laurel Leader. You just never know about the great cheap things to do in your community till you check out the local paper.
In the past, I have posted about the activities at the Laurel Museum. http://dreamingoutloud.nl/tag-tuesday-me-time/ On Saturday June 13 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. the Laurel Museum at 817 Main St., the Museum will be hosting a 1950s fun event. There will be hula hoops, egg toss and a pie eating contest for both kids and adults. These are only some of the 1950 themed events that will be taking place. For more details contact Lindsey Baker 301-725-7975 or www.laurelhistoricalsociety.org.

This event will be hosted by Council Member Gayle Snyder. The decorating will be followed by a parade at 7:15 p.m. and an ice cream social right after the parade.
Laurel Maryland is such a fun place. Make sure you read the Laurel Leader and the Laurel Gazette for fun family activities right in your own back yard.
