Independence Day Celebration

July 3: Star Spangled Band Showcase

The party’s set to kick off Wednesday at the Cultural Plaza, 414 Lake Ave., with the 3rd annual Star Spangled Band Showcase, hosted in conjunction with The Nine Society.

Delray Beach roots rock group Mitch Herrick and the Homegrown Sinners, Ft. Lauderdale “rocktronic” trio ZBRAand Pompano Beach blues group Shaw Davis and the Black Ties will battle it out for the chance to perform for the crowd on Independence Day.

Music is set to start at 5 p.m., and the winner, voted on by the audience, will be announced at 10 p.m. Admission is free.

July 4: “Throwback Thursday” Independence Day Celebration

Of course, it wouldn’t be Independence Day in Lake Worth Beach without the annual Great American Raft Race.

This year marks the 18th iteration of what’s been called “the biggest event in Lake Worth,” a race that pits neighborhoods, small businesses and other groups against one another in a mad dash around the Bryant Park boat ramp on homemade rafts.

The winner gets their name on the coveted Grundge Cup trophy — not to mention bragging rights for the year.

The beloved city event, and the brainchild of City Commissioner Herman Robinson and the Bryant Park Neighborhood Association, began in 2001. Director of Leisure Services Lauren Bennett said 25 to 30 teams are expected to set sail down the Intracoastal Waterway this year — up from 18 last year and 13 in 2017.

This year’s theme is “As Seen on TV.” Participants will parade their rafts through downtown Lake Worth Beach starting at 11 a.m. and the race is set to begin at 1 p.m. in Bryant Park.

Following the race, four bands — including the winner of the Star Spangled Band Showcase — are set to take the stage at Bryant Park, starting at 3 p.m. Live music will continue until 9 p.m., and will be followed by a fireworks show.

“Since Independence Day is on a Thursday this year, we decided to go with a Throwback Thursday Theme with three of our bands playing throwbacks and classic jams,” Bennett said.

The celebration will feature food and beverage vendors, as well as a car show, craft vendors and a kids’ zone.

July 5: Lake Avenue Block Party

The party carries over into the weekend with Friday night’s Lake Avenue Block Party.

Lake Avenue from J Street to Federal Highway will be closed to traffic for the event, but many restaurants and shops will be open to offer special deals and live music. Friday’s event will also feature a car show, craft vendors and music.

The block party is set to take place from 6 to 9 p.m.

JULY 11-28, 2019

Lake Worth Playhouse


One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town’s youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score,  FOOTLOOSE is the ultimate 80’s dance musical with a message!





The Lake Worth Playhouse occupies the former Oakley Theatre, the oldest building on the register of the Art Deco Society of Palm Beach County. It was constructed on the wave of a movie mania sweeping the country in the early 1920s. Today, the Playhouse is proud to offer a variety of mainstream and alternative programming, both live and on film.
Prices:  $23.00-$38.00

All Year Long-- Worth Avenue is a place for all seasons.

Long over are the old days of a Palm Beach social season that opened in mid-December and snapped shut the day after Washington's birthday. These days, Palm Beach and Worth Avenue are busy with events all year long, some to benefit local charitable organizations, others as a way to celebrate island living--and Worth Avenue--in general. The Association also teams up with other organizations for major style and fashion-oriented events.

Other signature Avenue events include holiday festivities, a pet fashion show (this is Palm Beach), and many other whimsies and diversions.
