Free events this week

 

panthers tree lighting
Plan your week on the cheap with this list of free events, from  Monday, November 24th,  2014, to Sunday, November 30th. Some highlights are the Inaugural Carolina Panthers Tree-Lighting Celebration outside Bank of America Stadium and Small Business Saturday, during which American Express customers can get $30 in credit. Also, Bass Pro Shops is offering free pictures with Santa every day, as well as free games and Christmas crafts. If an event looks like a regularly recurring event and it lands around a holiday, it’s a good idea to call the business and make sure it’s taking place. If you’re not doing this already, you can subscribe to Charlotte on the Cheap’s daily emails (just one a day), and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
