Friday date night for July 26, 2019, just got hotter with promises of a packed Summer Vybz on the Promenade event hosted by the Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency. This free evening of entertainment, food and fun is open to the public at Riviera Beach Marina Village!
JULY 19, 2019, RIVIERA BEACH, FLORIDA—The Riviera Beach CRA is on a mission to enhance the community and is doing so by crafting signature events locals and visitors can enjoy. Set for July 26, 2019, beginning at 7 p.m., Summer Vybz on the Promenade will offer something for everyone to enjoy at the picturesque Riviera Beach Marina Village.
This second event in the Riviera Beach CRA “Vybz” series comes hot on the heels of the successful Spring Vybz event held in April at the Riviera Beach Marina Village. The Vybz events set the stage for date nights, although can also be a place to network and meet members of the community, relax on the promenade and just enjoy the picturesque Intracoastal Waterway. Summer Vybz will feature food trucks and drinks for purchase, karaoke, the feature-length thriller film written and directed by Jordan Peele and starring Lupita Nyong’o, “Us,” a “Good vs. Evil Twin” costume contest based on the plot of the film. Attendees must be age 21 or over to join this free event.
Earlier this summer, the Riviera Beach CRA hosted their inaugural Neighborhood Day, another free community event with the purpose of improving the quality of residents’ lives in Riviera Beach. Held at the Riviera Beach Community Garden, Neighborhood Day brought locals together to foster friendships, discuss issues and check out the harvest fruits and vegetables growing in their neighborhood.
The Riviera Beach Marina Village Event Center is a modern hub of celebration. It’s a prime location that offers year-round opportunities for private and public events. Designed to host groups from 10 to as many as 300 people, Marina Village boasts indoor and outdoor party space, banquet halls and conference rooms with scenic backdrop of waterfront views. Marina Village hosts weddings in addition to offering a variety of water activities for the public, such as kayak and paddleboard rentals, fishing charters, parasailing and more.
The Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency
The Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency is at the heart of dramatic transformations underway within its district. Formed in 1984 by the Riviera Beach City Council, the CRA provides funding for a wide scope of projects that incentivize economic growth through business attraction and retention; finances new and improved infrastructure for real estate projects; and generally works to expand the tax base by creating a welcoming environment that eliminates blight and improves the perception of safety in the area.
The Agency’s main mission is to guide the city’s redevelopment efforts. This includes making investments of public funds in key infrastructure improvement projects that have the capacity to act as a catalyst for additional private funding and development, create jobs and help to improve the quality of life for city residents.
