It’s the last week in July. Back to school and football are right around the corner. This may be your last chance for a (nearly) full summer week. So here’s what that week looks like for the fortunate people of Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, Stanton and Westminster.

WEATHER: Slightly higher temps this week in the low 80s and high 70s. Cloudy skies turn to sun later in the week with some fog in the morning on Friday.

MEETINGS: Garden Grove Planning Commission meets on Thursday at 1 p.m.

ENTERTAINMENT: The only major release this week is “Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw,” rated PG-13. It’s an action-adventure flick with lots of gunfire, car chases and explosions. It stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.

On the live stage, “West Side Story” continues at the Gem Theater in Garden Grove. In Westminster, there’s “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”

EVENTS: The free summer concert series continues in Garden Grove with Knyght Ryder performing tunes from the 80s and 90s at Eastgate Park starting at 6:30 p.m.

In Westminster on Thursday, Shake, Rattle and Roll – an Elvis tribute act – will perform at the Civic Center Sunken Gardens from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

If you’re more of a history buff, Blakey Historical Park (8612 Westminster Blvd.) will be open on Sunday from 1-4 p.m. It’s the home of the Westminster Historical Society.

The Vans U.S. Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach will continue through next Sunday (Aug.4).
