As parents, we all know how important summer learning is. There will be no “summer slide” in my house! Luckily, a modern Boca dad himself and our mayor, Scott Singer, agrees. He recently issued a proclamation declaring that June 1 – August 31 will be designated as Summer Reading 2022! This year’s theme is “Oceans Of Possibilities.”
The festivities begin with a free Kick-Off Party on Saturday, June 4, 2022 from 9:00am−Noon at the Spanish River Library, 1501 NW Spanish River Blvd. The whole family is invited to play games, enjoy food, listen to a live DJ, attend an Under the Sea Bubble Party, and much more.
Residents are also welcome to participate in the over 100 programs and classes for all ages at the Boca Raton Public Library (BRPL). I can definitely appreciate some FREE summer fun!
If there’s one thing I know about Boca moms, it’s that they looooove them a local staycation. And, that staycation tastes just a little bit sweeter when you have visitors (IMO). There’s a certain satisfaction that I get from showing off my beautiful state of Florida to out-of-towners. Whether it be the Florida Keys, the Space Coast or even the Gulf Coast, I am proud to be raising my family only a few hours away from some amazing vacation destinations. So when the opportunity to take my in-laws (from Maine) on a multigenerational Florida staycation arose, we decided to go for it!
Did you know you and your family now have the opportunity to visit the Swiss Alps, ancient Rome and North Dakota…ALL while never having to leave Boca Raton? This “travel” is courtesy of the latest Blockbuster ‘get’ for the Boca Raton Museum of Art following the conclusion of Machu Picchu and the Golden Empires of Peru.
Yes, it’s official! Hollywood comes to Boca Raton with the world premiere of Art of the Hollywood Backdrop: Cinema’s Creative Legacy. This larger-than-life show is the first dedicated museum exhibition of its kind honoring the unsung heroes of Hollywood’s artistic DNA, going back through time almost 100 years!
Not to mention, it allows creators like me the opportunity to take some really fun Instagram photos…
