RPB Plans ‘Star Spangled Spectacular’

Royal Palm Beach’s annual “Star Spangled Spectacular” will take place at the new Royal Palm Beach Commons Park. Festivities begin at 1 p.m., and the Zambelli Fireworks International show begins at 9 p.m.

As part of the celebration, the day will feature multiple activities including a kids fun zone area packed with carnival-style rides, slides, games and fun. The zone will run from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will require a wristband purchase.

The headline entertainment will feature live music by Odyssey Road, a Journey tribute band, beginning at 7 p.m. The ever-popular food truck invasion will be on hand with more than 20 gourmet food trucks. Great shopping will be at a premium featuring an arts and crafts show displaying local artists and their hand-crafted masterpieces.

An interactive DJ will spin all the hits and a variety of live country and tribute bands will perform. There will also be an open mic session, cornhole and volleyball tournaments, the annual Mayor Cup kayak race, a fishing tournament, a 5k fun run in the morning and more.

Parking is available throughout the park. Avoid traffic and come early; bring lawn chairs and a blanket. For more information, visit www.royalpalmbeach.com or call (561) 790-5124.
