Goonies 30th Anniversary Celebration

The "truffle shuffle" never gets old, and neither do the Goonies. It is simply hard to beat a group of kids trying to save their homes from an impending golf course with a pirate treasure adventure thrown in. This 1985 classic is now 30 years old and where better to celebrate than in the towns were the story actually unfolded. Check out "Mikey's House" or see where the epic car chase by the docks took place with fellow Goonies lovers. Ah, there is nothing like the '80s. Check out the full schedule at coastexplorermagazine.com.

Milk Carton Boat Race

Why recycle when you can build a watercraft out of your used milk cartons? Yes, an actual watercraft that can keep a person (or two) afloat. Don't worry, with multiple categories for different age groups, there is no way a 5-year-old girl can beat you. There are also separate competitions for artistry and speed, with a special category for boats that are propelled by human power, but are not using the traditional paddling method. Still need a demo? Check out instructional videos on YouTube.com. Register at dairyfarmersor.org. 11 am. Westmoreland Park Casting Pond. Free.

Women's World Cup – First U.S. Game

Sure, you can watch the Women's World Cup games taking place in Canada in the comfort of your own La-Z-Boy, but wouldn't it be more fun to watch the U.S. women take on Australia in "Soccer City USA"? Winnipeg is a bit of a drive, but a friendly Portland bar isn't all that far away. Fox has committed to showing 16 of the games, which is a record amount for the men's or women's world cup. Check out the full schedule at fifa.com, eh.
