Summer in Paradise Kickoff
June 7, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 6:15 pmFree
Through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County, whose mission is to build simple, decent and affordable housing for low to very low-income families around the world, the City of West Palm Beach will continue to include philanthropy in its seasonal “Summer in Paradise” (SIP) campaign. The magical, enchanting stories that once upon a time taught generation after generation that anything is possible will come to life when the child-size “Fairy Tale Playhouses” make their debut during the Summer in Paradise kickoff at Clematis by Night. Each of the 15 painted playhouses illustrate a timeless fairy tale, including beloved tales from around the world, such as “The Little Mermaid,” “The Three Little Pigs,” “Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox,” and more. The playhouses will be on display daily through July 26, when they will be auctioned off to support 15 local nonprofits. In addition to the “Fairy Tale Playhouses,” visitors to the Waterfront this summer can also engage in non-stop summer fun, to include: a “Big Storybook” photo opportunity, with a newly crafted chapter; “StoryVille,” a create your own life-size fable activity; “FlaminGO Croquet,” complete with an “Alice in Wonderland” theme and flamingo mallets; and “Fairy Tale Trivia Tuesdays.” As is summer tradition, the City will expand its Clematis by Night offerings, booking two times the bands and extending entertainment hours to 10 p.m. Guests at the SIP kickoff will also enjoy live performances by reggae band The Resolvers, and opening act Reggae Brew.
