What to do this weekend in and around Jupiter including a jubilee, a manateefest, a groundhog celebration and a food truck pow wow
The big day is finally here. The Jupiter Jubilee is this weekend and if that’s not your cup of tea, well, lucky you because there’s a whole lot of other fun happening but we recommend at least stopping by the jubilee for some yummy cider donuts. ALSO – cross your fingers because the weather isn’t looking awesome right now and many of these activities/events are outdoor.
Below is the latest list of local going ons we’ve uncovered for this week. They are mostly free or really cheap. One or two might cost a bit more but we’ve included them only if they look super cool 🙂 We hope you enjoy and if you know of one we’ve missed or one coming up we totally want to hear about it. Drop us a line.
