The mission of this page is finding events for Jupiter and North Palm Beach County parents with a specific interest in helping locals find the smaller and lesser known (but just as fun) events. If you happen to know of something you think we need to share, and it meets our general criteria (local and family friendly) then send us a note.
Below is the latest list of local going ons we uncovered. Want more? Join our Facebook Group for the inside scoop before anyone else gets it and check out our full calendar to find much, much more. This is just the beginning.
