It seems like there is always something to do down here in South Florida. This area is teeming with life and excitement, so narrowing down these events was pretty difficult.
1. Boca Burger Battle
This one should be on the list for all the dads out there. The Boca Burger Battle goes down on July 15th in Boca Raton. The grills light up Sanborn Square Park as some of the best grillers in the country descend upon the town. This event is 21+, since there is drinking. $50 is general admission, which gets you unlimited tastings and three drink tickets. Live music from one of the world’s premier reggae/country bands will be entertaining the crowds this year. The judges are all expert chefs, and you could learn a thing or two to bring back to your own grill.
2. Sick Puppies Comedy Show Improv
Like the last one, this is for the more mature audience. The Improv here is more than just a show. The crowd is not only allowed to yell out, but is actively encouraged to participate and make the night that much more exciting. Local actors and comedians come out to put on a show for you. The laughs roll all night long. These events happen on a regular basis, so take a date with you on a Saturday night and laugh your tail off.
3. Delray Beach 4th of July
This one is a family affair. You can start with the sand sculpting at noon, then hang out all day. Putt-putt golf will be there, as will live music. At 9:00 PM, the fireworks start. Officials from the city are going to be on hand to count down for the fireworks. Grab a towel, head up to the beach, and celebrate America.
4. 6×6 Art Sale
If you love art and are in Delray Beach, this one is an absolute must. All pieces of art are 6 x 6, and cost the same $30. It is $5 to get in. This is going to be on the 27th of July, from 6 to 8 PM. The artists donate their works, and the proceeds of the sales all go to charity. Before everyone bids on the works, you will have an opportunity to preview the art. This will take place at the Crest Theatre Galleries.
5. Summertime BBQ Bash
Not only do you get to eat a whole mess of barbecue, you get to benefit the Twin Palms Center for the Disabled. On August 10, head down to 35th Street to dine upon some of the best barbecue you will ever have. This one is going to be fun for the whole family, and if you buy your tickets ahead of time they will be cheaper. 5 Spice Asian Street Market, a local establishment, sponsors this event.
