There’s plenty to do in the KMC area this spring break weekend! The Ramstein & Vogelweh Bowling Centers on Friday and Saturday are offering free bowling for kids.

This Friday, the Ramstein Enlisted Club is hosting a Texas Hold’em tournament. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., the game starts at 6:30.

Kaiserslautern’s Gartenschau, colloquially known as the “dinosaur park” because of the huge dinosaur models scattered throughout, opens for the season on Saturday. If you’re looking for a challenge, join Outdoor Rec for a 7-10 kilometer French Border hike to see four majestic 12th-century castle ruins.

On Sunday, head to Wolfstein for family fun at the limestone mine with the train rides into the tunnel, games, and more.
