Village Hosts Five Festive Events


The Village of Parks is more like the Village of Events this time of year. Leading the list is the recent press conference announcing official designation of Palmetto Bay's Municipal Complex as a Platinum LEED building last month.

As we move into Veteran's Day weekend, please consider joining us, Monday, Nov. 12, to honor those past and current members of the armed forces. We are hosting a ceremony at Palmetto Bay Park with a special appearance by members of the Marlin Moore Post 133. Read more.

Palmetto Bay and Feeding South Florida team up for the Village's annual Holiday Food Drive. Do your part to help those in need this time of year.

Get a jump start on your holiday shopping at the D.A.RE. Arts & Crafts Festival, Nov. 17, at Coral Reef Park. Proceeds of the sale help fund the popular anti-drug program. Read more.

And wrapping up the event season, Palmetto Bay's incredibly popular Annual Holiday by the Bay," Dec. 22., a veritable Christmas wonderland on Biscayne Bay. Enjoy student holiday performances, carnival foods, arts & crafts, and a special appearance by Santa Claus himself.

Please visit the Village website for details on these and other holiday activities, events, and information. And if you are interested in underwriting the cost of these or any other annual Village event, please contact Mary Fernandez, Planning & Events Supervisor or call 305-259-1234.
