BAKERSFIELD, CA- Some local parents are making it easier to find family-friendly events around town, through a free weekly e-newsletter. Macaroni Kid is a national organization, with local publishers all over the country.

The online community provides information on activities and deals, along with articles and tips for parents.

Northwest Bakersfield Macaroni Kid publisher Cristina Torres said, "Just wanting to help the community I guess, wanting to give resources to families that just don't have the time to."

Each week, Torres spends hours researching activities for families to do in our community.

"There's lots of events in Kern County and in Bakersfield. So, to put them all in one place I think is best, than trying to find them on your own, which I already did," she said.

Every Thursday she sends out an e-newsletter to subscribers, highlighting events, articles and deals.

Torres said, "There's a whole list of places that the kids eat free, from Monday through Sunday and I found one for every day of the week."

Torres decided to become a publisher after looking for an easier way to find events for her own family to do. now she hopes other parents will benefit from her research.

"Now that I have the newsletter, I'm able to just give it to them in one stop for them. So, I can do all the work and they can just come to me," said Torres.

After a few weeks, almost 100 users subscribed to the Northwest Bakersfield Macaroni Kid newsletter. Torres says southwest and central groups are also in the works.

Anyone can subscribe or submit events for free.
