*Back-to-school shopping: Opportunities to shop, share and save money while buying (some) school supplies abound this weekend. Get a $10 gift card for The Gardens Mall, 3101 PGA Blvd., when you spend $150 or more at select stores during the tax holiday this weekend. The mall is also hosting a Shop & Share Saturday benefiting the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County.

Then hit up the Macaroni Kid’s Back to School Bash 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday at Downtown at the Gardens, 11701 Lake Victoria Gardens Ave. The first 150 guests get swag bags, and there’s free entertainment and kids’ activities.

*Check out some quality baseball: Forget about the Marlins. Palm Beach Gardens Baseball is hosting the Cal Ripken World Series for 10-year-old All Stars from around the country at Gardens Park through next week.

Put on your favorite jersey, grab a hot dog at the concession stand and root for the home team. Family Day includes a free concert from 9:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sunday before the games begin. Details are here.

*Catch a flick with local connections: It’s a shame to recommend the movies when we live in such a beautiful place, but a dreary forecast and a Boynton Beach-themed film playing at PGA Cinemas is just the right combination to warrant it.

It’s your choice between the “Boynton Beach Club,” a rom-com about residents of an “active adult” community, or “The Lost City,” a more serious movie about a Havana club owner who wants to stay out of politics but finds his family divided by Castro’s Revolution. See the PGA Cinemas’ website for details and ticket info.
