Here are five ways you can have fun this weekend.

1. The big movies opening this weekend are “Everest,” a PG-13 thriller about mountain climbers; “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials,” a PG-13 sci-fi action movie in this franchise; and “Black Mass,” an R crime movie about Whitey Bulger starring the amazing Johnny Depp.

2. Everyone’s favorite holiday is finally here! No, not Christmas, we mean Talk Like A Pirate Day. Saturday is the day you can talk like a pirate and not be scorned for your actions. Dressing up like a pirate is optional but a lot of fun.

3. Clean Up the World Weekend takes place from Friday to Sunday. This is an annual event designed to get people to clean up their towns and to help the environment. Check the paper for listings, as there might be litter pickup activities or other such things.

3. The Emmy Awards are Sunday, and this year Andy Samberg is hosting. The fun starts at 8 p.m. EST on Fox. For a list of nominees, the latest news and more, go to the official site, http://www.emmys.com/.

5. It’s another big sports weekend, so get out those TV listings and start planning. The menu features college football, NFL, MLB, soccer, NASCAR’s Chase and more.
