Today's economy are forcing many families to stay local and be a bit creative. Every Sunday, after church service, I take out my calender and the plan the week, in advance. There are many local things to do in East Hartford that will definitely not break the budject.
Looking to keep everyone busy and entertained, while they are out of school or work, could be a bit challenging.
Here is one weekly Thursday event, I will surely not miss.
