The Town of Surfside, Fla., knows how to throw summer parties.
Beginning May 5 the South Florida beach town north of Miami will kick off its summer First Fridays events with a Moroccan Beach Picnic. Who need Cinco de Mayo?
The event is free and open to the public. It will take place on Surfside’s beach and is a great way to experience the ever-evolving area like a local. It will include live Middle Eastern music, belly dancers, drum circle and tipi village for kids, cold-pressed juices, coconut water courtesy of Harmless Harvest, and healthy snacks.
For a hint of beachside couture, luxury women’s fashion boutique, Le Beau Moroc, plans to showcase new seasonal Moroccan designs during a fashion show on the sand. Guests can take refuge from the sun under ornately designed oversized tents.
The Moroccan Beach Picnic is scheduled for 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Oceanfront Community Center.
It is the first of a series of four events, which will be held every first Friday of the month, from May until August. Additional events include: a Caribbean-themed picnic with a Bahamian junkanoo band (June 2); Americana-style picnic with s’mores, American folklore storyteller, haystack maze on the beach and more (July 7); August gives rise to Bollywood with Indian food, henna tattoos, and Bollywood dancers (Aug. 4).
