217 Free Things to do in the Spring

The Big One having fun at a free church event.

     It's amazingly difficult to come up with 365 free things to do in the Springtime without using a lot of the same things as the Summer list.  That said, I will post this list as it is and I WILL come up with 148 more things... some day.  For now, please enjoy this list of 217 free things to do in the Spring, however late this list may be.  Also, you will notice that a few things are in fact also found on the Summer list.  That is because these things are essential to outside fun :)  What do you do for fun that's free?
