The Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl

FAU Stadium, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton, FL 33431

The 2018 Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl kicks off at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 18, as the Northern Illinois Huskies from the Mid-American Conference and the UAB Blazers of Conference USA take the field as part of “Boca’s biggest annual outdoor party.”

Played on the Tuesday before Christmas, this bowl game is an annual holiday tradition in The Palm Beaches. In the 2017 game, the FAU Owls took on the Akron Zips and emerged victorious, 50-3.

The bowl game is played in the 30,000-seat FAU Stadium on the Florida Atlantic University campus in Boca Raton—it’s the only stadium in the country with views of the Atlantic Ocean—and is nationally televised for fans unable to make the trip. If you are attending the game, join in the community activities taking place all week long. Dates and times for team welcome parties, beach parties, pep rallies and more will be released at a later date, so check back here for details.

In the meantime, we’ve got plenty of ways to start planning your trip to The Palm Beaches. Boca Raton offers a mix of outdoor activities and culture, with plenty of shopping and dining options. Stroll through the Boca Raton Museum of Art or walk the trails of Gumbo Limbo Nature Center. Practice your backswing at Boca Raton Municipal Golf Course, or soak up the sun at Spanish River Park and Red Reef Park. And if you like to dive or snorkel, there’s a whole ‘nother world underwater.
