Yeah, air-conditioning is nice. But this week is all about getting free from your house and enjoying the great outdoors -- for free. You can watch Despicable Me in the park, catch a live dance performance, or see an HBO documentary on a farm. For more events, go to the Westword calendar, and share other bargain entertainment happenings in the comments section below.

Arrive early for a chance to win prizes and get a good spot on the lawn.
