This week’s suggestions include seeing a new movie (“The Bourne Legacy,” “The Campaign,” “Hope Springs”), watching the last weekend of the Olympics, seeing the Perseids meteor shower, and more.
1. The London Olympics conclude this weekend, so catch all the action you can, because it will be four long years before the Summer Games return. The closing ceremony is Sunday at 4 p.m. EDT. Check out a schedule of Olympic events here.
2. This week’s new movies are “The Bourne Legacy,” a PG-13 movie in the Bourne franchise NOT starring Matt Damon (Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton and Scott Glenn star); “The Campaign,” an R-rated political comedy starring Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis and Jason Sudeikis; and “Hope Springs,” a PG-13 comedy/drama starring Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones.
3. The peak of the Perseids meteor shower is this weekend. The moon shouldn’t interfere too much, so you’ll have a good chance to see the show. Check the newspaper to see if anyone in town is holding any events, or Google the best places to watch from your area.
4. National Garage Sale Day is Saturday. If you haven’t visited any sales this year, this weekend is the perfect time! Check the newspaper for a full listing of garage sales.
5. Sunday is International Youth Day, a day designed to highlight youth issues across the world. Some places will be holding special events this day, so check the newspaper for listings.
