WHY: The Back to School Bash is a fun way for kids and families to celebrate the return of the school year and the end of the summer. The Summer in Paradise Campaign will CONE-tinue for two weeks longer, but families and friends can get together at this fun event for some quality time before the rush of the school year begins.
The 5th annual Summer in Paradise campaign encouraged visitors to take a ‘SIP’ of summer with fun and free construction themed activities to embrace Phase II of the Clematis Streetscape project, which aims to create wider sidewalks with more shade trees and a more pedestrian-friendly environment on our City’s most iconic street. In its always-fun spirit, the Community Events Division embraced the construction, encouraging visitors to get out of their comfort “cone” and enjoy the construction-themed events and fun surprises.
“Our annual summer-long promotion of free events during Summer in Paradise is always about connecting the community,” said Mary Pinak, Community Events Manager for the City of West Palm Beach Department of Parks and Recreation. “This year’s iCONE-ic-themed SIP, offered locals and visitors non-stop entertainment to encourage people to pardon our dust, with a tongue-in-cheek nod to Clematis Street construction. Summer is the perfect time for families to enjoy vibrant live music, activities and games. We are thrilled for the fun to cone-tinue.”
