Bowling alleys in Quincy, Palmyra, and Hannibal have teamed up with the “Kids Bowl Free” summer program to allow kids to…well…bowl for free. It’s a very appropriately-named program.

Quincy's Tangerine Bowl, Palmyra's Pal Bowl, and Hannibal's Ten-Pin Alleys are currently listed on the website.


Kids 15 years of age and younger can sign up at and receive two free games a day (Monday through Friday) from May 15 until August 31 between the hours of 9:00 am and 7:00 pm.

That’s 76 days times two games of bowling times $3 per game and you’re getting $456 worth of bowling for free! Though shoe rental is not included, that’s still a pretty nice deal.

More than 14 million kids at 1,100 bowling alleys across the United States and Canada have signed up for the Kids Bowl Free program since 2009.
