Welcome to a sizzling edition of Atlantic Ave Magazine. And I don’t just mean the weather!
It is choc-full of ideas to keep you and your family entertained this month!
There are copious amounts of concerts in our town this month, many of them ‘FREE’, so there is no excuse not to get your party on and enjoy – For starters there is The Derek Mack Band, considered South Florida’s PARTY band! This versatile group of musicians will be performing music from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, or the concert featuring a Rolling Stones Tribute Band where you can get a full dose of energy – (I can’t get no) Satisfaction – or a bit of Jumpin’ Jack Flash!! Both can be seen at the Amphitheater, at Old School Square, 51 N Swinton Ave, Delray Beach. For a full list of events go to www. delrayoldschoolsquare.com/events
The whole month of September brings you the mouth-watering 8th annual Downtown Delray Restaurant Month. It’s your opportunity to check out some of the sizzling, savory, delectable dishes from over 30 cafes, restaurants and fast-food eateries, often at special prices.
If you wanted to start your holiday shopping early this year, then The Downtown Delray Beach Craft Festival is the perfect place to go! Held on September 9th and 10th on 4th Ave/Atlantic Ave, expect to find a vast array of vendors selling goods from Candles to Wood items and everything in-between.
Our City Person this month introduces you to a born and bred native, Joycelyn Patrick. A woman who works quietly and tirelessly giving back to Delray Beach, the community that gave her so much. Keep reading this issue to learn more about this special lady and how she impacts the lives of so many.
Signing off on Sizzling September and look forward to seeing you in October!
