5 things to do under $5 July 4-10

1 Glazer Children's Museum: The interactive museum is offering reduced admission of $4 today (It's normally $15 for adults, $9.50 for kids).

2 Photo Scavenger Hunt: Take the family on a scavenger hunt in the Weedon Island Preserve using a digital camera. Pick up a list of clues and head out into the preserve.

(727) 453-6500. It runs 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

4Curtis Hixon Park: The beach volleyball courts set up last month for the Margarita Festival in Curtis Hixon Park are still around.

If you go today, there's a special edition of Rock the Park from 4 to 8 p.m. with performances by The Sh-booms, Booker & Norton and Vinny Virgo. Free.
