Hot dog! It's time for Palmetto Bay's 13th Annual Celebration Picnic. This Saturday, the "Village of Parks" truly shines as more than 4,000 residents gather to commemorate another successful year as an independent municipality. Along with all the traditional picnic food and fare, we're also rolling out a few new activities this year, such as the "Bike Ride with the Mayor." Enjoy dozens of kiddie attractions, student music, and good friends and neighbors, too. Our small town knows how to throw a big event, so please join us at Coral Reef Park as we celebrate Palmetto Bay.
