Friday, Jan. 3rd
FREE FRIDAY CONCERT with RUM CREW
Delray Beach Center for the Arts
Outdoor Pavilion, 7:30 pm
Chill out with Rum Crew’s special blend of beach music covers… and a Rum punch to go with!
True to their own style the band says, “we play some tasty tunes and will talk a lot about Rum. Why might you ask? Because we love Rum — not just the libation, but everything that comes with Rum: friends, family, music, the ocean, sailing, surfing, fishing, fun…fun…fun….and on and on. So are we Rum Professionals? Not by any sense of our imagination (well maybe a little imagination). Come out and enjoy the music, enjoy the friends, enjoy the lifestyle, and most importantly, enjoy the Rum!!”
Enjoy gourmet food trucks! Cash bar and limited chair rental available. Bring your lawn chairs and bring the family, but PLEASE no pets or outside food/beverage.

The campus includes the charming Cornell Museum of Art and American Culture (c. 1913); the intimate, 323-seat Crest Theatre (c. 1925); the Vintage Gymnasium (c. 1925; the School of Creative Arts, which is housed in the Crest Theatre classrooms; and The Pavilion, which opened in 2002.
DISCOVER THE JEWEL OF SOUTH PALM BEACH COUNTY
One of Palm Beach County’s hottest destinations is Delray Beach, which (in 2012) was named MOST FUN SMALL TOWN in the U.S.A. by Rand McNally, USA Today and the Travel Channel on a nationally televised special, “Best of the Road.”
Delray Beach is a first-class resort destination and a diverse, vibrant, community situated on the Atlantic Ocean between Boca Raton and West Palm Beach. A small town with big city sophistication, Delray Beach is 30-45 minutes from Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale International Airports, and just one hour north of Miami. A two-time winner of the coveted All-America City award (1993 and 2001), Delray Beach celebrates its art, culture and history.
Downtown Delray’s Atlantic Avenue, which runs through the center of town from I-95 to the ocean, is the longest Main Street in Florida. A popular destination for locals and visitors alike, Atlantic Avenue is a charming streetscape filled with upscale shops, fine restaurants and nightly entertainment. The downtown is known, nationally, for its family-friendly festivals such as the Delray Affair and Delray Beach Garlic Fest and for its famous 100-foot Christmas tree, where visitors can walk inside to see animated displays.
The downtown’s booming art scene is an experience for the eyes and the soul! More than 25 galleries and numerous public art pieces are located downtown. Gallery Walks along Atlantic Avenue draw visitors on Friday nights from October to April. The Pineapple Grove Arts District and its emerging Artists Alley are just north of Atlantic Avenue and are gaining popularity for their eclectic mix of working studios and galleries. Artists Alley hosts open studio/gallery nights on the third Thursday of each month.
An impressive variety of accommodations stretch from the beach to the heart of the downtown and range from luxury, to historic, to whimsical — all with a creative, tropical flair. An award-winning beach, water sports, historic sites, museums, theatres, exceptional golf and tennis facilities and other unique attractions are within minutes of the downtown shopping and entertainment district. Twenty minutes to the west visitors can experience nature preserves, equestrian facilities and Florida’s Everglades.
Delray Beach is creative, authentic, intimate… a jewel of Palm Beach County ready to be discovered! Learn more at VisitDelrayBeach.org.
