What do you mean, Pam?
Every day is free day at our house, but I'm thinking you are referring tosomething specific to do with a school or group?

FREE Day is every Friday in Charlotte, NC. The NCUnschoolers put it together. They've worked out a deal at a local Rec center to have homeschoolers come and just hang out. They have a basketball court, coin operated games, park, empty rooms, and a chess-playing dad (who is willing to take on any challenger! <g>).

It's not *exactly* free---it's $10/family/year. <g> But everyone is free to do whatever he wants. One of the moms brought her worm bin to show (I came home with a cup full of worms to start my own indoor compost bin.)last Friday. Lots of folks bring knitting and games---and, of course, snacks.

FREE to do what you want---and a bunch of other unschoolers to do it with. All homeschoolers are invited, but mostly unschoolers show up 'cause we're not busy with curricula! <G> It's a nice day!
