Nights on Clematis will soon be a bit brighter thanks to new programming at the newly renovated Centennial Fountain at the Nancy M. Graham Centennial Square (150 North Clematis St.). The City of West Palm Beach‘s “Clematis by Light” will start with a “Love Our CommUNITY” show on Thursday, February 11. The nighttime attraction will run from 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday to Sunday through March 11. The show will include a waterworks spectacle set to synchronized lights and music.
“Love Our CommUNITY” is the first in a series of new programming for the upgraded fountain, which debuted in December 2020 during the city’s Holiday in Paradise celebration.
“The renovated Centennial Fountain is now both an attraction and destination, adding to the vibrancy, economic development, and sense of community in our downtown,” said West Palm Beach Mayor Keith A. James. “I hope everyone has an opportunity to safely experience the renovated fountain at Love Our CommUNITY. We look forward to future opportunities of incorporating the Centennial Fountain into our regular and special event programming.”
Due to COVID-19 and in accordance with national, statewide, and local safety guidance, the city encourages everyone to follow all CDC guidelines. City staff will monitor and encourage social distancing, sanitize high touch areas, and provide hand-sanitizing stations throughout the venue.
