5 things to do under $5 Aug. 28-Sept. 3

1 Sleep Walk Tampa Bay: A walk on the beach to raise awareness of sleeping disorders is fittingly called the Sleep Walk. Participants are encouraged to wear pajamas or other sleep-related costumes from the land of Nod for this 1.5-mile walk behind the TradeWinds Island Grand Resort to benefit Project Sleep. It's $5 to sleepwalk and it runs from 9 to 11 a.m. Sunday at 5500 Gulf Blvd., St. Pete Beach. (727) 798-0174.

2 Dogs With Dogs: In celebration of National Dog Day, the boutique pet store Royal Pets Market and Resort in Tampa will host a festival for dogs and their humans that will include free hot dogs for owners, pet photos, paw painting, pet caricatures and adoptable dogs on site. It's free but they will be taking donations to benefit the Humane Society from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Royal Pets Market and Resort, 16010 Mapledale Drive, Tampa. (321) 960-0474.

3 VW Beach Bash: We still call the Volkswagen the love bug around here, and more than 100 new and classic VWs will be on display with food trucks and crafts and Volkswagen product vendors. It's free from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Frank T. Hurley Park, 1501 Gulf Way, in Pass-a-Grille.

4 Target Tuesday: It's normally $15 for adult admission to the Glazer Children's Museum in Tampa but once a month the hands-on museum and Target join together to offer free admission to everyone from 2 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday. The museum is at 110 W Gasparilla Plaza, Tampa. (813) 443-3861.

5 Glow Party: Wear neon clothes or body paint and be prepared to glow at this party starting at 9 p.m. Sunday at the Honey Pot, one of Ybor's most popular gay and lesbian nightclubs. There will be LED and glow giveaways, dancing to music by DJ Ranny, black light dancers and $1 drinks until 10 p.m. It's free entry, $5 after 10 p.m. at 1507 E Seventh Ave., Tampa. (813) 247-4663.
