Turning the corner from July to August, we fine a surprisingly robust calendar of events before us in the coming days. Take a few minutes to look through the calendar listings to find some truly delightful and worthwhile opportunities.

For those preparing for Back-To-School activities, it’s the annual tax-free shopping weekend for school supplies. August 2 through 6 consumers pay zero state and local option taxes on clothes and shoes ($60 or less per item), school supplies ($15 or less pet item) and computers ($1,000 or less per item) purchased for noncommercial home or personal use, according to the Florida Department of Revenue.

Thanks to our Great Gables sponsors for helping us bring this weekly email newsletter to the residents of Coral Gables.
