Summer Brings a Potpourri of Events to Palm Beach County
by Dianne Feen
If you had been reading Facebook you would think that most people in Florida and in Palm Beach County, in particular, had boarded a plane to somewhere exotic like the coast of Italy or the blissful terrain of Santorini.
But, luckily there are always a lot of people in town – and there’s a lot of fun things to do. If you don’t mind the heat and the sizzle doesn’t fizzle your good vibes, you’re in a treat.
One of the most fun that will shift your chakras and lift your vibration is the Coco Market in Veterans Park. If you’re an early bird you not only get the worm (maybe) but you got a Yoga Class with renowned Yogi Pedro. If you’re like me you still caught the rope throwing class with AJ & Georgie. This outdoor exercise lets you throw your weight around even if you are most timid person on the planet.
Coco Market is the brainchild of Corey Heyman, who seems to have tapped into the authenticity of Woodstock with a mystical contemporary vibe. There are healers, musicians, artisans selling everything to make you feel or look good (or both), healthy food vendors and a friendly vibe that will make you think it was 1970.
Speaking of a kinder gentler time, The Delray library has free films during the summer. They start at 2pm (a respectable time for night owls) and are wonderful films that will have you laughing and thinking. It’s laid back, the sound is not so loud that you need industrial strength headphones and the temperature is perfect, not blistery cold. You get free popcorn and water, and the other movie goers seem like they just walked off the set of Mr. Rogers.
