Talk of the Town

Cruise through Weston and its surrounding neighborhoods to discover lots of local events and activities! This month we’ve got exciting happenings that include refreshing yoga sessions, burgers ‘n brews, and Sunrise’s very first Comic Con.

August 4

Relax, rejuvenate, and rest at The Weston Yoga & Wellness Center. A special workshop by Alexis Robinson will demonstrate new techniques that feature arm balances and back bends. These postures can help with many things that include strengthening your core and upper body, boosting confidence, concentration and balance, preventing osteoporosis and broken bones, and much more. All levels of yoga students can attend, but some familiarity with popular poses is recommended.

August 12

The city of Sunrise will host its first ever ComicCon at the Sunrise Civic Center! Food trucks, comic artists, guest speakers, authors, and vendors selling comic books, toys, and other memorabilia will all be a part of the fun! Make sure to dress up as your favorite character to attempt to win the cosplay contest. After, don’t miss out on the Super Smash Bros Wii U tournament, and the other 60+ open-play gaming systems that will be featured! The city’s very own superhero, Captain Sunrise, will also make his debut!

August 17

The 2nd annual Burger and Brew Fest will be the perfect way to end your summer! With craft beers and scrumptious grilled burgers by local hot spots, how could you go wrong? Additional food and novelty vendors will be on site to provide other meal options as well as cool items to purchase. Live music by local bands will be the icing on the cake; be prepared to dance all night long!
