Movies, bowling, and a transit center are coming to Downtown Homestead. The grand opening of Homestead Station, located at 4 S. Krome Ave. in Homestead, will take place on Saturday, Oct. 26, from 4 to 8 p.m.
The event marks the completion of the first major public-private retail partnership in the heart of Downtown Homestead.
The picturesque streets of Downtown Homestead will host family-friendly activities, food trucks, and a beer garden while entertainment headliner, DJ Irie, spins in Losner Park. Just before 6 p.m., the “March of the Movie Characters” parade on Krome Avenue will feature Homestead community groups showing off their style with costumes and performances tied to their favorite movie themes.
The parade will culminate in front of Homestead Station, where the opening ceremony will occur. Tours of the Showbiz Cinemas family entertainment center including movies, bowling, and a video arcade will start immediately after. Finally, the evening will conclude with an epic fireworks finale at 7:30 p.m.
Homestead Station is part of an overall effort to revitalize Downtown Homestead. Other recent projects include the restored Seminole Theatre, new city hall, and new police headquarters.
