Hot dogs, pizza, roasted corn-on-the-cob, chips, cotton candy, soda and Sno-cones. What is it?
If you're a resident of the Village of Palmetto Bay, you don't even have to think about it, it's the 10th Annual Palmetto Bay Celebration Picnic. This 4000+ person picnic is thrown every March to celebrate the incorporation of Palmetto Bay (which occured on February 5, 2002). Thrown by the staff and elected officials of the Village, this monster bash is sponsored and thrown as a free event for all residents of Palmetto Bay.
As a resident, I enjoy getting out each year and seeing all my neighbors. The food and fun is infectious. This year, among the many acts was the Coral Reef Elementary School Choral Group. You can hear them in the video montage below.
Every aspect of this unique event makes me feel like I'm in a "Happy Days" rerun. There is a rivalry baseball game with the Mayor throwing out the first pitch, music and entertainment under the gazebo, bounce houses and activities for the kids, food of all kinds. You just can't beat it.
When you're ready to take part yourself, just call me. I'll find you a great home in the Village and you'll already have an invite to next year's party!
