Five ways to have fun this weekend.
1. In theaters this weekend is “Spider-Man: Homecoming” which takes place several months after the events of “Captain America: Civil War” as Peter Parker, with the help of his mentor Tony Stark, tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student while fighting crime as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man. Also out is “A Ghost Story” starring Casey Affleck as a recently deceased man who returns as a white-sheeted ghost to his suburban home to try to reconnect with his bereft wife (Rooney Mara).
2. Invite your friends over for some gaming this weekend as Saturday is Video Game Day. Play your favorite new releases or vintage games or go online to watch recaps of last month’s Electronic Entertainment Expo presentations to learn what video game publishers are planning to release in the coming months.
3. On Sunday, celebrate National Sugar Cookie Day and National Ice Cream Month by placing a scoop of ice cream between your favorite bakery or homemade batch of sugar cookies for a DIY ice cream sandwich. Or add some sugar cookie crumbles as a topping to a hot fudge sundae.
4. On July 8, 1947, a public information officer at the Roswell Army Air Field in New Mexico issued a press release stating that personnel there had recovered a “flying disc”, which had crashed on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. So began one of the world’s most famous — and most debunked — UFO claims. While there’s still no hard evidence of alien life to celebrate, you can still celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Roswell UFO incident: Watch some alien-themed TV shows (such as the recent X-Files reboot) or movies (“Independence Day” or it’s sequel “Independence Day: Resurgence”), or make some alien-themed crafts.
5. On the sports front, this weekend we have NASCAR’s Quaker State 400 at the Kentucky Speedway at 7:30 p.m. ET, as well as the usual Major League Baseball and Major League Soccer games, so you’ll have plenty to watch on TV. Check your newspaper for schedules.
