Put a positive – and very colorful – spin on summer with a visit to Los Trompos (Spinning Tops), an interactive installation on the Great Lawn of West Palm Beach’s Waterfront. Inspired by the classic children’s toy and by the rich cultural heritage of their native Mexico, contemporary designers Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena have created a kaleidoscope of color and movement. Climb aboard one of their 20 larger-than-life “tops” from June 2 through Aug. 28 as the City of West Palm Beach presents Summer in Paradise, a lively celebration of art, music, movies and free family fun. On the second Friday of every month, the Waterfront will be transformed into an outdoor theater for Screen on the Green, which offers free screenings of family-friendly films. Sunday on the Waterfront, a monthly concert series, pays tribute to musical legends on the third Sunday of the month. Every Thursday, Clematis by Night is the hot spot to chill. Other activities include nine holes of glow-in-the dark miniature golf stretching along the Intracoastal Waterway, monthly food truck events and Art Night Out in Northwood, as well as happenings on and under the water, ranging from full moon paddleboarding to sunset catamaran tours and snorkeling trips.
