Weekend is almost here – Fun things to do in West Palm Beach

Happy Friday! The weekend is ALMOST here. West Palm Beach is always hopping over the weekend. Here are some ideas to get you started each day.

1. Screen on the Green: The Phantom of the Opera

TONIGHT Screen on the Green will feature The Phantom of the Opera!

A disfigured musical genius, hidden away in the Paris Opera House, terrorizes the opera company for the unwitting benefit of a young protégée whom he trains and loves.

Phantom of the Opera, Broadway’s longest running show celebrates 25 years in 2013! Join us on the Great Lawn with your blankets and lawn chairs for a free screening of the live action movie, adapted from Andrew Lloyd Weber’s 1986 musical at 8 p.m. on November 8. There will be a few spooky surprises!

Screen on the Green is hosted each month on the West Palm Beach waterfront. It’s a family friendly event and draws in hundreds to enjoy a movie on our beautiful waterfront. Grab a cooler, some blankets, and even your dog (but try to keep it quiet so that I can hear the movie).

You can also enjoy food from Pizza Girls, or grab a drink from World of Beer or Bar Louie, or enjoy dinner in any of the Clematis Street restaurants.

2. West Palm Beach Green Market

The West Palm Beach Green Market held on Saturday Morning is a fantastic event for the whole family, and this weekend will be the perfect weekend for it. Come hungry, leave with a full stomach, a bag full of organic vegetables, and some beautiful flowers for your dinner table.

Our Favorite: Strawberry & Nutella Crepes!


Orchids and lots of other local plants at the Green market

Also running along-side the Green Market is the Antique Flea Market right around the corner. Check it out while you’re there.

Sunday Brunch at the Wine Dive

The Wine Dive has the most happening Brunch on Clematis Street. The party starts at 10 am and in honor of Movember, Wine Dive will be hosting a Mustache Bash Brunch! They will be serving up their famous $10 bottomless mimosas and bloody marys in style. So grab a ‘stache and get ready to party. Reservations encouraged // 561.318.8821

When they say “Reservations encouraged” they mean, “The place is packed, but if you want to stand around and wait outside until there is a spot, that’s fine with us.” Take it from me, make a reservation!


Annual Veterans Day Parade

The Veterans Day Parade, produced each year by the Palm Beach County Veterans Committee begins at 2 p.m. and travels from west to east on Clematis ending at the Lifestyle Festival on Flagler Drive. Expect veteran’s organizations and individuals, marching bands, JROTCs, Cub Scouts, The Shriners, car clubs, cheerleaders and more. The parade is geared towards the community and will be a true tribute to the men and women who have served and continue to serve our country!

The Veterans Day parade at Clematis Street is a “must-see” event, not only is it well produced with high energy, but it’s a great way to honor our veterans who have scarified so much for this country.

That’s all from me! Have a great weekend!
