After a long week of working and school, a Friday night out can either sound like a wonderful escape or a call for exhaustion. It is also very rare to find something to do on a Friday night that is good for all ages, inexpensive, enjoyable, and safe.
Enter the city of Delray Beach’s “Free Friday Concerts in the Pavilion.” Every Friday night at 7:30 PM from now until January, there will be a host of local bands and singers performing for free for all to enjoy. The event is located right on the Old School Square at at 51 N. Swinton Avenue. There will be food vendors and a cash bar on premises.
Last Friday was the opening night celebration, with over thousands coming to enjoy the sounds of a Beatles Tribute Band. Many danced while others sat out in the grass, tapping their toes to the Beatles’ iconic hits. The concert could be heard all throughout the downtown strip, providing great background music to walk the street to while scoping out restaurants and enjoying the cool October breeze floating from the ocean.
While admission is free, donations are appreciated. More information on upcoming performances can be found here: Delray Free Friday Concerts
Parking is available throughout downtown Delray, with garage parking costing $5 for the evening. Don’t forget to bring blankets and lawn chairs, and no pets or outside food/beverage.
