What’s Going on Delray?, Activities, Events, Entertainment, South Florida, Palm Beach County, Friday, Saturday, Sunday



I cannot believe that February is almost over.  It was so funny; today I was at Rehoboth Auto Repair located in Rehoboth Beach when a local builder from Lewes came in and stated “everybody in this darn town is on vacation”, “my electrician is in Florida”, “my plumber is in South Florida”, but “”not me”.  His next statement was “I like here like this, no tourists, no bugs, no heat”.

That made me think about Delray Beach.  It was crowded when I was there last month and I wonder if the locals are ready to take their town back.  I think we do feel that way around here, at the end of the summer, but tourism is what makes our beaches.  I don’t know, I think I am ready for Spring and Summer; for those visitors to arrive and see how lucky we are to live here.

As usual, Delray Beach is full of activities this week-end.  So here is a taste of what you can experience if you find yourselves in the warmer climate of that Village by the Sea.

Delray Beach, Florida, Village By The Sea, Activities, Events, South Florida, Palm Beach County



Just like a lot of you, I am in the cooking mode for Thanksgiving.  My Turducken is all thawed and as soon as I finish this post I will start making my side dishes.  Simple is the way I like my dishes; not too sweet but with a lot of flavor.

I have gotten my wish; it is a gray day and cool; leaves are on the ground.  Actually, they are all over my deck and yard.

I was thinking about all the people that have been traveling since yesterday on planes and cars and I give thanks that on this Holiday, I have stayed home; football games and enjoying the season.

The town of Delray Beach, Florida, is one of those I write about a lot.  I do because I have a place there and a lot of people from the eastern shore (Delaware and Maryland) visit this Village by The Sea.  It must be that it reminds us of home.  The coastal atmosphere and the relaxing way in which we live here at the beach.


It still amazes me as I write this, how someone about a month ago wrote to my blog; took the effort to tell me how horrible Delray Beach was and the added comment was that she hated my life.  Oh, well, what can I answer to that?  To each its own, that’s what I say. 

I do like Delray Beach; the way the town is set up, the beach is great, fantastic restaurants, little boutiques, lots of activities and events, music to entertain the visitors and residents every day of the week.  Gorgeous palm trees and accessibility to walking, biking and running.

So, speaking of that, this is what I found out and I am passing it on to you in case you are in the area:


Old School Square – Cultural Arts Center – 51 N. Swinton Ave., tel. 561-243-7922.  website

This is a National Historic Site that houses the Cornell Museum of Art & American Culture, Crest Theatre and Vintage Gymnasium, restored in early 20th century school buildings.

It is considered the catalyst for the 1990’s renaissance of downtown Delray Beach when historic preservation and the arts became one.

Saturday, 11/27 – Trash & Treasure Community Yard Sale from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the Entertainment Pavilion where the Old School Square is located.  Join them for a bargain hunter’s dream.  More info?  Call 561-243-7922, e xt. 319.

Saturday, 12/4 is Cycles, A Musical Journey, at the Old School Square at 8:00 p.m. $30.  Drew Tucker, Delray’s percussionist has arranged this musical “feast for the senses”.  It combines classical piano with high energy percussion (Blue Man Group-Style).
