AUSTIN, Texas — The weekend is here and, as always, there are a ton of things going on in the Austin area! From a screening of a '90s classic with a side of community outreach to an exhibit focused on mental health, there's no shortage of interesting activities happening over the next few days.
Here’s a breakdown of just some of the events you can attend this weekend.
On Saturday, Austin community partners are helping you get ready for school with Sendero Fest.
Sendero Health will team up with Austin ISD, Austin Public Health, Central Texas Food Bank and more for the event. They'll help your child get up to date with school immunizations and vision screenings.
You could also walk away with school supplies, games or a CapMetro bus pass, all for free.

It's not the "Pismo Beach Relief" drive, but you can still channel Cher Horowitz's kindness this weekend!
On Sunday, the Paramount Theatre is screening '90s classic "Clueless" – and movie-goers that go the extra mile will get a special prize. The theater is partnering with Good Party to offer a free film pass to a future "Summer Classic Film Series" screening to all who bring an item from Austin Pets Alive!'s wishlist.

In conjunction with the "Mental Health: Mind Matters" exhibition, NAMI Central Texas will present a discussion intended to "change attitudes, assumptions, and ideas about mental health conditions." Attendees will hear from individuals with lived experience about what it's like to have a mental health condition and overcome it.
When: Saturday from noon to 1 p.m.
