West Palm Beach’s most anticipated event of the season, 4th on Flagler, returns Monday, July 4, from 6 to 10 p.m. on the waterfront along Flagler Drive between Banyan Boulevard and Fern Street.
The family-friendly evening offers a bit of fun for everyone, including live music by Reverend Barry & The Funk, an eight-piece funk band featuring a three-piece horn section and several Grammy-nominated musicians.
The second annual Bill Bone 5K kicks off at 6:30 p.m. sharp, beginning and ending at Post Park; if you’re up for the run, register here. All proceeds from the run benefit the Wounded Veterans Relief Fund.
The Palm Beach Health Network Family Chill Zone takes over the Meyer Amphitheater, featuring a DJ, kid-friendly inflatables ($5 for unlimited play), face painting, a magician, stilt walkers and a juggler. The Military Honor Salute on the NewDay USA Stage at 8:45 p.m. includes remarks from Mayor Keith A. James, a presentation of the annual Hometown Hero Award and a live performance of the national anthem. Food and beverages are available for purchase throughout the event.
“Set along the beautiful West Palm Beach waterfront, 4th on Flagler is packed with patriotic revelry, entertainment, food, fun and fireworks in celebration of Independence Day,” James said. “There is something for everybody at 4th on Flagler.”
