Weekend Family Fun in South Florida

Through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County, the City of West Palm Beach will continue its community-engaging initiative, which supports local artists and nonprofits through the building, painting and auctioning of 12 unique, outdoor playhouses, collectively referred to as the “Global Fairy Tale Village.

“Summer in Paradise” is the City of West Palm Beach’s annual celebration of summer, where the City offers free, family fun – and memories – with the waterfront as a backdrop. Deemed the Kingdom of “Storyville,” the Waterfront Commons will include the “Global Fairy Tale Village,” a “Big Storybook” photo opportunity, with a newly crafted chapter; a create your own life-size fable activity; “FlaminGO Croquet,” complete with an Alice in Wonderland theme and flamingo mallets; and “Fairy Tale Tuesday Trivia.” 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.

See This NEW Exhibit at the South Florida Science Center! And… LEGOS!

The South Florida Science Center recently debuted the newest addition to its 10,000-gallon aquarium, “Mangroves and the History of Our Ecosystem.” Thanks to a gift from the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties, the exhibit combines science and history to educate visitors about South Florida’s unique environmental habitats and how they directly impact the area’s quality of life.

The new exhibit showcases Florida’s estuaries and rich history while demonstrating the importance of Florida mangrove’s fragile and rare habitat. A custom tank shows the mangrove tree’s ability to adapt to both salt and fresh water environments and houses live animals including crabs and several species of fish. Through an interactive display with graphics, puzzles and games, a kiosk highlights the historical significance of mangroves throughout South Florida and the importance of the tree’s habitat to ecological sustainability.

Go On A LEGO Adventure!

Guests of all ages will be challenged to think creatively to plan and build LEGO vehicles to maneuver through mountains, jungles, oceans, deserts and more. Take your adventurous spirit to the next level by dressing up as a pilot, sailor, racer and expert world explorer as you take the wheel of life-sized toy vehicles and engage in dynamic play. With this exhibit, Toy Story Land (and its massive crowds) at Disney’s Hollywood Studios can wait for fall, am I right?

You’ll even be able to share your LEGO creations through a photo booth set up against a destination backdrop. Visit far away destinations like San Francisco, Paris, Hawaii and more without ever leaving South Florida! LEGO’s larger cousin, the Duplo brick, will also be on hand for younger children. I loved the Duplo building phase in our house. They were so much easier to clean up…and less painful to step on versus the little guys Avery plays with now. Ouch.

Tickets to “Travel Adventure” Featuring LEGO Bricks are included in the general admission, which is $16.95 for adults, $14.95 for seniors, $12.95 for children (3-12), FREE for children under 3, and FREE for members. Get ready to build adventurously through Sept. 29!
