The last special event of the school year was held on Saturday, May 31st from 4 – 9 pm in Heritage Park. Residents were able to enjoy two classics at once, a Classic Car Show, presented by Jumpin’ Jack Productions, and a Classic Rock and Roll performance, music provided by VIVA.
School may be out for the year, but that only signals the beginning of more fun, summer fun in Sunny Isles Beach. There is plenty of fun in the sun for kids, parents and vacationers. From the beaches, to the ocean, the splash pad at Heritage Park and the playgrounds at all the City parks, there are a myriad of activities to keep all ages busy.
Summer Camp is well underway with field trips such as bowling, paintball, and water parks offered to the campers. Of course there is always the beach, right at our own front door. If liquid sunshine begins to fall, there are arts and crafts and games to fill the days. There is still limited space available in summer camp. Or families can find activities at the Community Center from our instructors who offer lessons such as karate, chess, guitar and piano throughout June, July and August. Stop by Pelican Park to sign up for something that interests you!
The summer event season kicked off with the 17th Anniversary celebration on Sunday, June 15 from 3 – 7 pm at Town Center Park. Featured activities included the traditional barbecue and cake cutting with games for the kids while parents enjoyed music by Higher Ground. Check out our Photo Gallery.
