After years of financial trouble, former video-rental giant Blockbuster Video has announced they will be closing their 300-some remaining physical stores.

Stop by Everett Middle School between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday to get in on the fun, and don’t miss the old classic, Capture the Flag, at 2:30 p.m. Events continue on Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Mission Rec Center on Harrison Street.
