The City of West Palm Beach welcomes residents and visitors to have a “SIP,” a “Summer in Paradise,” beginning Wednesday, June 1, 2022 through Wednesday, August 31, 2022. The multi-month campaign includes free concerts, movies, fireworks and more for the whole family to enjoy.
In addition to the special events, the Great Lawn (100 Clematis Street) will also feature several pop-up photo opportunities. The three-dimensional, one-of-a-kind backdrops will include a fun, social media promotion, where winners will be selected to win goodies and gift cards from local merchants.
“We are excited to host Summer in Paradise events in West Palm Beach, once again, ” Mayor Keith A. James. “We hope to see you soon, whether it is for a concert, movie on the lawn, or our annual and much-anticipated return of 4th on Flagler.”
“Summer in Paradise is all about enjoying our many events on the waterfront,” said Mary Pinak, community events manager for the City of West Palm Beach. “With kids out of school, and the sun shining into the evening, the Great Lawn is the perfect place to relax and make memories. We hope to see everyone there!”
The most anticipated event of the summer is 4th on Flagler, the city’s annual Fourth of July celebration. The event is South Florida’s largest, free outdoor Independence Day celebration, featuring an 18-minute fireworks show over the Intracoastal Waterway. The event is on the Waterfront from 6 – 10 p.m. (along Flagler Drive between Banyan Boulevard and Fern Street). Activities will include live entertainment with Reverend Barry and the Funk on the NewDay USA stage, two DJs, the Bill Bone 5K, Palm Beach Health Network’s Family Chill Zone featuring a hands-on kids’ area, Military Honor Salute, and refreshments for purchase. Fireworks are scheduled to ignite around 9 p.m., weather permitting.
