As barbeque grills heat up all over the country in preparation for the 4th of July holiday, both World Cup competition and Wimbledon heat up too. This weekend, Serena Williams vies for the Wimbledon title – again, while the LeBron sweepstakes is keeping NBA fans in suspense.

If it’s too hot to be outside – and it may be; in some parts of the country some expect sizzling temperatures this weekend – there’s always a good book to curl up with as the AC blasts, or you can head to your local cinema to get cool there. Either way, be cool!

Check out what’s happening near your town this weekend.
