You have plenty of options for fun activities this spring in Palm Beach County – from music to art to late-night graveyard tours!
If you like festival fun and hot music, you do not want to miss Sun Fest during the first week of May, with art vendors, fireworks and every type of music under the sun. It happens all along the Intracoastal waterway in downtown West Palm Beach.
Before it gets too hot, take a hike through the only state park in Palm Beach County: John D. Macarthur Beach State Park. With two miles of beaches, kayak rentals, and hiking trails, plus a monthly Cruisin’ Food Fest & Concert Series, you can’t miss.
If the temperatures outside are already too much for you, go for art and culture in air conditioning: Check out the unusual and beautiful Glasstress exhibit at the Boca Raton Museum of Art. This exhibit displays examples of glass art work from Murano, Italy. “The results challenge our notion of glass as a ‘beautiful’ material and encourage us to explore the bold, political, and sometimes less than pristine aspects of the medium,” explains the museum’s website.
And now for something completely different: make a reservation for a moonlight graveyard tour in downtown West Palm Beach. Not a haunted tour, but a history of our little spot in paradise told by the gravestones of the pioneers who settled the area. The tours are held only when the moon is full at Woodlawn Cemetary, not far from the Norton Art Museum. Bug spray is highly recommended. For reservations, call 561-804-4900.
