Calling All Fashionistas…2018 Delray Beach Fashion Week is Here

Happy 5th birthday DBFW! For those not in the know, I’m talking about the 2018 Delray Beach Fashion Week. It’s coming up later this month when downtown will come alive with style! We attended several of the events last year and had a blast! I even found a dress for a gala. 🙂

From January 24-28 (2018), get ready to experience spectacular fashion, local designers, art and beauty at this special event created by the Downtown Development Authority and the Downtown merchants. The local designs and diverse fashions will take center stage at the fashion runway events, Downtown fashion designers and hair show, fashion luncheon, Stiletto Race and the Delray Beach Fashion Week Boutique Shopping Event.

Start 2018 with a BANG at a Fushu Daiko Drum Show at Sugar Sand Park

Let’s start 2018 out with a bang, shall we? Plan to head to Boca’s Willow Theatre with the family on Saturday, January 6th for a rousing performance from Fushu Daiko! You won’t want to miss this drum show at Sugar Sand Park.

Come enjoy an art form that builds on a 2,600+ year old tradition of Japanese drumming. The music combines the traditional drums and rhythms of Japan with musical styles from around the world. This creates an exciting, powerful, cross-cultural experience that strives to cross boundaries and connect cultures.

Homecoming Family Fun Night in Boca Raton

I am personally excited about this Homecoming Family Fun Night in Boca Raton because there will be fun inflatables for the littles and games and obstacle courses for the big kids. And, it’s all FREE!

Food and drinks will be available for purchase and Kona Ice will be onsite all evening. There will also be Bingo entertainment, so bring your competitive spirit and some cash!

Because it also happens to be Grandview’s HOMECOMING Family Fun Night, the school invites attendees to stay and watch the fanfare starting with Homecoming Court. You can also cheer on the Pride at the girls and boys varsity basketball games! They will be held at 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. It’s going to be  a fun night!
