The City of West Palm Beach is encouraging residents and visitors to “Hurry to Currie” for two very special March events. The Palm Beach Post Spring Break Concert and a Spring Break Farmers Market, will bookend the week of Spring Break for Palm Beach County Public Schools, which is March 19 to March 23, at Currie Park, a beautiful site adjacent to the Intracoastal Waterway. The City of West Palm Beach’s award-winning events are always free and open to the public.
“We are excited about our ‘Hurry to Currie’ Spring Break promotion,” said Mary Pinak, Community Events Manager for the City of West Palm Beach Department of Parks and Recreation. “Normally in March, due to the excitement and success of the Palm Beach International Boat Show, we cancel our monthly Sunday on the Waterfront and one of our GreenMarkets. During Boat Show week this year, we decided to host a concert and farmers market a mile and a half north at our beautiful Currie Park on the Intracoastal Waterway, adjacent to the popular Northwood Village. What better time than Spring Break, when students and their families have a chance to enjoy even more time in West Palm Beach, especially before the heat of summer.”
Special “Hurry to Currie” Spring Break events include:
THE PALM BEACH POST SPRING BREAK CONCERT
Sunday, March 18, 2018
4 – 7 p.m. FREE | Currie Park, 2400 North Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach, FL 33401
Caribbean Chillers (Tribute to Jimmy Buffett) | http://www.caribbeanchillers.com/
- This Palm Beach Post Sunday on the Waterfront may be changing its latitude, but certainly not its attitude! Guests are being asked, in the words of a Jimmy Buffett song, to “Take Another Road,” and head to Currie Park instead. Once there, the Caribbean Chillers, a Jimmy Buffett tribute band, will make concert goers feel like they are in “Margaritaville.” Under the sway of palm trees on the waterfront, Parrotheads will relax to sights and sounds that make this special event feel like a real Jimmy Buffett concert. Bring your picnic basket, lawn chairs and blankets!
