With a series of West Palm Beach 125 events planned to mark the milestone, the festivities kick off on October 5 at the first GreenMarket of the season – also celebrating an anniversary of 25 seasons – and culminate at 4th on Flagler in July 2020. Events and activities include a comprehensive exhibit at the Historical Society of Palm Beach County, lectures at the Mandel Public Library, special boardwalk tours at Grassy Waters Preserve, neighborhood bike tours, a special light show shining on the Banyan/Quadrille parking garage and much more!
