There are not enough days for the weekend but what better way to spend it than with your loved ones?  

Take some time off and bring yourselves, your families and friends, and even your furbabies on a date because it will surely bring a week of content. Now get off your couch and plan your weekends right without having the need to empty your wallets.   

There is a lot going on around the metro but PhilSTAR L!Fe was able to come up with a list of upcoming events that you can check out over the weekend.

Box-All-You-Can, Glorietta

Have your boxes ready because you can fill your own containers with locally-produced fruits and vegetables at Glorietta’s Box-All-You-Can, a shopping game designed by Rural Rising Philippines for the benefit of local farmers.  

Shoppers can have fun and stack their boxes to the brim with produce in ten minutes for only P699. Run to the Ayala Malls Glorietta Activity Center on July 16 to 17 from 11 a.m to 7 p.m. There is no weight limit but the organizers require all participants to bring a box that is 14”x14”x8” in size.
