The apple of your eye is celebrating a birthday and you would like to show them how important the day is. We are all on a budget and have plenty to do. So, how do we put together a super fun party and stick to a budget?

Whether it's at Lake George or one of the city's other outdoor rinks, celebrating a birthday & winter in Minnesota can be a lot of fun. The warming shelter at Lake George is open weekdays from 4 pm to 8 pm, and weekends from 1 pm to 8 pm. A limited number of rental skates are available too. Best of all, it's all free of charge! You can see more info from the City of St. Cloud HERE.

There are a lot of little-known services offered on the St. Cloud State University Campus, and this is one of them. You’ll get a lot of bang for the buck in the Underground at the Atwood Memorial Center. Cake, bowling and a Birthday Coordinator (yes!) are standard but you can add more fun (without a whole lot more cost) with pizza, bowling, foosball, table tennis, billiards, darts and more. Decorations are included and parking is free.

Kids love to bounce, and with a birthday package you get to jump around, use of the party room, pizza, cupcakes, something special for the birthday boy or girl. Older kids might want a Warrior Course party. The real bonus here, though, is a bunch of tired kids and every parent knows that is priceless. More info HERE.
