First Fridays: Moroccan Beach Picnic in Surfside
Friday, 05/05/2017 – 04:00 pm – 07:00 pm
Oceanfront Community Center
9301 Harding Avenue,
Surfside, Florida 33154
The Town of Surfside invites Miamians to pack their picnic baskets for a family-friendly Moroccan Beach Picnic to kick-off the town’s much-anticipated monthly First Fridays event on Friday, May 5. Unlike any other community event, this casual soiree takes place on Surfside’s pristine beach and is a great way to experience the ever-evolving area like a local. Enjoy 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. Not to mention, 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. on May 5, 2017 at the Oceanfront Community Center, located at 9301 Harding Avenue in Surfside. This 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 (August 4.) First Fridays is free and open to the public. Follow #VisitSurfside and #FridayBeaching on social media for event updates. RSVP at https://www.facebook.com/events/408528242856226/.
