Summer in Paradise

West Palm Beach Waterfront, Downtown West Palm Beach, FL

From fireworks to live music, Summer in Paradise offers fun, free things to do in West Palm Beach this summer … and it promises to be iCONE-ic!
Downtown West Palm Beach is known for its terrific lineup of restaurants, boutique shops, and picturesque streets. Clematis Street is downtown’s most famous place to be and it’s undergoing a bit of an upgrade. But during this “pardon our dust” phase, Summer in Paradise is going construction cone crazy, call it iCONE-ic.

ICONE-ic Things to Do for Summer In Paradise

Cone-y Island is a maze configured out of construction materials with interactive play zones, shade areas, and water misters. For those really into checkers, play Cone Checkers on a giant board with cones. Even the construction vehicles are a thing to do, as the Kid’s Cone Zone has them to touch and explore. Then, start searching your closet for traffic cone orange and wear it on Fridays for Orange Out to win prizes. And since it’s summer and warm, SnowCONE Saturdays mean everyone can have a refreshing small snow cone (while supplies last).

Music and Movies, Free

One of the biggest showstoppers for Summer In Paradise is every Thursday, Clematis By Night. This concert series features bands playing everything from reggae to classic rock, each week is something new. On June 16 and July 12, it’s even more music with Sunday on the Waterfront and for family movie magic under the stars, Screen on the Green is on June 14 and July 21. All these events are free, with food and drink for sale, or bring snacks of your own.

Red, White, Blue and Boom

This year's 4th of July starts with fun and ends with a boom at the largest FREE Independence Day events in South Florida.  The annual 4th on Flagler celebration takes place along Flagler Drive from Banyan Boulevard south to Fern Street from 5 to 10 p.m. on Thursday, July 4, and includes free live music, plenty of food and drink options – including a craft beer garden, larger-than-life games, children’s activities, the annual Military Honor Ceremony and an 18-minute fireworks show igniting over Lake Worth Lagoon and Intracoastal Waterway.
