Get ready to take a SIP of the FREE family-friendly fun that the City of West Palm Beach has planned for Summer in Paradise. As a nod to the Clematis Streetscape construction, SIP will be filled with construction-themed events. Also, don’t forget that West Palm Beach’s 4th on Flagler is one of the largest fireworks shows in South Florida. There will be tons of music, large and small games, activities for all ages, the annual Military Honor Ceremony – and of course – fireworks over the intracoastal waterway.
