Have a Summer in Paradise (S.I.P.) in West Palm Beach!
June 7, 2018 – July 26, 2018 | FREE | West Palm Beach Waterfront
Visitors and residents are encouraged to have a S.I.P by the Waterfront in West Palm Beach this summer! The City’s annual Summer in Paradise campaign is returning and packed with fun – and free – things to do for the whole family! Guests will experience dynamic interactive art, exciting community events, waterfront activities, and unique, eclectic shopping and dining opportunities.
This year’s Summer in Paradise will also feature fifteen child-size playhouses, collectively referred to as the “Fairy Tale Playhouses.” In partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County, the mini-homes will provide entertainment and shade to the smallest of waterfront visitors, all while raising awareness of affordable housing. Each playhouse will represent a fairy tale, signifying the global outreach of Habitat for Humanity. Local artists will interpret the tales and on the final night of Summer in Paradise the playhouses will be auctioned off in support of fifteen local nonprofits.
In addition, fans of the installation can also see one more playhouse in Magic Garden. Created by Related, Magic Garden is a community green space on the corner of Rosemary Avenue and Evernia Street. Designed by internationally aclaimed artist Frankie Cihi, the playhouse will depict Thumbelina and will be placed in the children’s section of the outdoor space. At the end of the summer, it will be donated to Quantum House. Visitors wishing to try their luck on winning a playhouse can register to win a built, but not decorated home, located at the Palm Beach Outlets. The blank slate is designed to inspire budding artists to create their own fairy tale. For more information on how to register to win, please visit: palmbeachoutlets.com
