Bay Ridge is heating up!

It is now officially summer, so it is time to take your weekend shenanigans outside! We have a bevy of outdoor activities — and a few air-conditioned inside ones to help you cool off.

On Friday, sample what the neighborhood has to offer at the Taste of Fifth Avenue (Fifth Avenue between 73rd and 84th streets), starting at 5 pm. Enjoy a meal on the car-less thoroughfare, stroll the streets with a drink in hand, or bust a move to one of the live bands that will pepper the neighborhood bash. Fifth Avenue turns back into a pumpkin at 10 pm.

But before that happens, you will want to squeeze in a visit to the Narrows Botanical Garden (Shore Road between Bay Ridge Avenue and 72nd Street) for its first free movie night of the season — the Disney classic “Fantasia” at 8:30 pm. The 1940 animated flick brings classical music to life with a vibrantly animated feast for the senses. Be sure to bring a blanket and snacks to nosh on — we suggest popcorn.

After the show, saunter over to Three Jolly Pigeons (6802 Third Ave. at 68th Street) for the Seventh Annual ’80s Weekend Bash at 10 pm for a trip down memory lane with karaoke from the gnarly decade. And on Saturday night you will have another chance to bust your Miami Vice look — disc jockey Jukebox Johnny will spin all the era’s classics starting at 10 pm.

On Sunday, slap on the sunscreen and head for a concert by the seaside from world-renowned pianist Fumiyo Narita, who got her start at the Brooklyn College Conservatory. For the Sing For Hope Pianos Concert Series (Shore Road and 90th Street) Narita pays homage to her borough beginnings with a free concert of jazz and classical tunes.
