Of course if you have children then one of the most important free events in the year happens on November 10 - the wonderful Christmas Pageant. Missing that could cause serious problems with the young ones, so get in early to find a good spot.
And it's also the 30th birthday for the free Original Open Markets at Christies Beach, so you can grab a bargain there before watching the lifesaving.
Live music is incredibly popular in Adelaide, and many people will go to the Fowler's Live Music Awards 2012 to see which are Adelaide's best bands and venues. Entry is free although the drinks won't be, of course.
Gay and lesbian people (and their friends and family) are catered for too with the colourful free Pride March on November 10 signalling the start of the fabulous Feast Festival.
And if you haven't seen it yet The Pitch it, Post it Exhibition is still on at the Festival Centre, displaying how advertising a 'show' has changed dramatically over the last 100 years.
Also at the Festival Centre Our Mob 2012 is a state-wide celebration of South Australian Indigenous art. This annual exhibition helps to develop knowledge and understanding of Indigenous art and culture.
On the first Sunday of every month START at the Art Gallery there is an introduction to visual arts for families and children. The free START program is suitable for children aged 5-10 and includes art activities, tours, trails, live music and entertainment.
For gay and lesbian people there is an absolute Feast of events this month, with a huge variety of inexpensive offerings culminating in the Picnic in the Park at Hindmarsh Square. Download a copy of the Feast program and see just how many special acts are coming to town.
If you enjoy checking out markets, wander down to the Bowerbird Bazaar and shop till you drop for $2 entry fee.
To escape the city for the scenic Yorke Peninsular, how about going to the Moonta Antiques and Collectibles Fair? There are heaps of things to do over there and it's a hugely popular holiday destination.
And finally if you'd like to stay closer to home, why not meet some of your favourite screen stars at Supanova? With stars like James Marsters and Felicia Day in town there will be quite a queue I imagine.
The Dunstan Adventure Playground at St Peters is rapidly becoming the most popular playground listed on Weekend Notes for people looking for something a little different to do.
But few people realise that there are several other attractions just minutes away. There are free BBQ and toilet facilities nearby alongside the Torrens Linear Park, and if you have never seen a Billabong then you can find a great one just a short walk away.
The Swinging Bridge was in the Advertiser recently as a recommended attraction, and it's in St Peters too, while there is a more conventional playground a short drive or ride away at Linde Reserve.
In the western suburbs kids love exploring and feeding the ducks at the Apex Park wetlands, and spring is the perfect time to look at the timeless coastal scenery as you wander in the Tennyson Beach Dunes.
And finally for a great day out in the southern or eastern suburbs, find out about all the attractions at Urrbrae - there is something for all ages and interests.
