What's On This Weekend: August 11-13

August 11, 2017

If this is the year you are going to introduce your kids to The Goonies, there is absolutely no better venue for it than under the stars at Kollen Park in Holland. There's something magical about watching it in a crowd, in the height of the summer, with a cool breeze that makes you want to cozy up under the blanket -- that combination right there is nostalgic perfection. 

Of course, if you are among the few who don't love Chunk and the crew (how could you not?!), there are plenty of other summer festivities to distract you from the fact that the summer is winding down. 

Have a wonderful weekend!
