Things to do in Dublin: Hunter's Weekend Picks

Hello Friday, now to sort through all the noise and find the best things to do in the city this weekend. This week there's a bit of a sporty theme. Sport: Wakeboarding This is the 3rd annual Women's Wakeboarding Day at Wakedock in Grand Canal with discounted rates for female riders. Book in with the guys to give it a go, before the canal gets colder and colder. Winter is coming so now is the time. Fashion: The Back Page The Back Page are hosting a Sports Flea this weekend just in time for the Olympics and Premier League kick off. Sports wear between €5 and €500 will be on offer, so expect vintage football jerseys galore. You can head along for the flea, stay for the pizza and pints. Sport: 2016 Olympics Games The opening ceremony of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games will take place tonight in the Maracanã Stadium, Rio de Janeiro! These things are usually quite the spectacle so whether you're watching it at home, in the pub or at a friends it's the perfect talking point. The creative directors for the ceremony are the Brazilian film directors Fernando Meirelles and the producer Daniela Thomas.
