Richmond Events This Week: August 7 – August 13

Family-Friendly Richmond EventsThere are only a few weeks left of summer vacation and school will be starting again.  Some of you may be excited about having the kids back in school.  If so, you want to be prepared.  We have gathered the school supply lists across Richmond as well as some places to help you save some money!  Some of you may be in the other group and are not excited about the new school year.  Consider taking a last minute road trip with the family.  To help, we have created a list of 10 Tips for Road Trips with Kids.  If you are not able to leave town, don’t worry.  Enjoy the many fun family-friendly Richmond events going on every week!  As always, make sure to visit our full calendar for all of the events occurring this week and beyond!
