Here are some frugal events for your consideration, as the March school holidays come to an end. And today is Holi, the festival of colour (also known as the festival of love). May it remind us to celebrate love, friendships, and the beauty and colours of life.



*Please note this is a partial listing. And there are other free/frugal events happening elsewhere, especially at parks, museums, libraries, and community centres.
