WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — From science fiction, to supporting our natural areas, and a little baseball, there are a lot of events this weekend.

1) Night for the Natural Areas - Palm Beach Gardens

Twisted Trunk Brewing will hold its sixth “Night for the Natural Areas” at the brewery in Palm Beach Gardens on Saturday, August 28 from 2 p.m. -7 p.m. They will release their 2021 edition of Loxahatchee Lager. The event raises awareness and outreach funds for Palm Beach County’s Natural Areas. To date, Twisted Trunk has donated over $19,000, all of which has helped provide free genuine connection of our community to these incredibly special places. The event costs $25 which gets you a beer, raffle ticket, and food from Food Shack. There will be art of Palm Beach County's natural areas up for sale.

"[It's] just one of our favorite weekends we've just really enjoyed making the beer we enjoy the people that we meet and again it's such a great cause and it's where we live," said Fran Andrewlevich, Twisted Trunk.

2) Start Me Up! A Tribute to the Rolling Stones

Start Me Up! is the most authentic recreation of the Rolling Stones that you will ever see. The sights ... the sounds ... the moves... are all part of this high-energy show that will have you dancing and singing along to your favorite songs. With the death this week of drummer Charlie Watts this tribute show seems appropriate.

3) Ultra Con - West Palm Beach
