UPDATED Oct. 25, 2012
The Meet Me on the Promenade street festival in Downtown Boca is back Oct. 27, with food, live entertainment, kids’ activities and more. The festivities planned for Friday night, Oct. 26, have been canceled due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy. Saturday’s events will go on as scheduled.
New this year: Costume contests for kids and pets, shop-to-shop trick-or-treating and a bike zone. Bicyclists can park Comerica Bank, Federal Highway and Palmetto Park Road, and also get bike safety checkups, giveaways and more.
The festival starts at 10 a.m., right behind the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, which starts at 9 a.m. at the Mizner Park Amphitheater. (You can register for the walk here).
Meet Me on the Promenade continues until 10 p.m. with entertainment, a green market, car exhibits, artists and crafters expo, community resource booths and more. Halloween events for kids start after 3 p.m. Participating shops will be offering special deals, sidewalk sales and more.
Live performances include 11-year-old singer Mason Pace, the BeetleJuice Rock ‘N Roll Monster Revue and the band Shin Dig.
Admission is free. The festival takes over much of the downtown area around Sanborn Square and along Palmetto Park Road east of Federal Highway, as well as Mizner Park and Royal Palm Place. A trolley will be running throughout the area.
