Something different - Palmetto Bay hosts it's first Pokemon event. Fun was had by all

I was pleased to bring forward a new type of event to Palmetto Bay - and make it part of the diverse range of activities that can be enjoyed within in our Palmetto Bay Parks system.  We want to reach all our fellow residents with activities from the skate park, beach volleyball, walking trails, native areas, football, baseball, softball, Yoga, the tot lot playgrounds to name just a few!

The day was Saturday, August 27.  The event was the first-ever Pokemon Lure party in Palmetto Bay Park.  The pictures best tell the story.  The turn out was incredible and I was thrilled to see so many kids, all ages, out in our park.  This is #SmallTownUSA! 

Please see my prior post of 8/15 for some background of the event set up: Announcing Palmetto Bay's Pokemon GO event. Join us for yet another fun activity held in our parks.

Our youngest enjoyed the event as did Miami Hal - aka Hal Feldman with spouse Judy.
Kids, young and old, parents, and grandparents participated.  It was a date night of activity both for adults as well as our youth.  There were food trucks, a DJ, prizes, meeting up with friends and neighbors.  It was all there to be enjoyed at Palmetto Bay park on Sat. August 27.
