Friday Night Live To Host Patriotic Event July 6

Continuing its Independence Week celebration, the Downtown Boca Friday Night Live monthly entertainment series presented by JM Lexus will host a free, open-to-the-public patriotic in-the-park picnic-style evening Friday, July 6 at Sanborn Square.

The event will feature the NHL’s Florida Panthers “Panthers Patrol” playtime, complete with an 88-foot-long street hockey rink, live Americana-infused entertainment and the family film Miracle starring Kurt Russell. The ever-popular Gourmet Truck Expo will be serving up street-side easy-to-grab picnic-style culinary fare with café seating, including American barbecue favorites such as hamburgers, hot dogs and more.

The Panthers Patrol will lead the fun with interactive activities for children, including its unique Panthers obstacle course, the always-popular bounce house and the Party Mobile, a “tricked-out” interactive gaming mobile fully equipped with flat-screen TVs and PlayStation 3 gaming systems. Local talent Kendra Fulmer, a former winner and finalist in the annual Boca Raton Future Stars Performing Arts Competition, will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. to pump up national pride with family sing-along patriotic songs. At dusk, Miracle, the true story of the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team victory over the seemingly invincible Russian squad, will take center screen.

Monthly Friday Night Live evenings include gourmet truck dining with café seating, extended hours at participating businesses with special sidewalk tastings, samplings, trunk shows, dining specials, menu items and discounts and often late night “after parties” for exploring and enjoying the destination, from Mizner Park to Royal Palm Place, including the signature collection of shops and boutiques, restaurants and galleries along Palmetto Park Road and Plaza Real South.

Sanborn Square is located at 72 N. Federal Highway (one block north of Palmetto Park Road) in Boca Raton. Admission is free; chairs are available for rental for $2.
