Family Fishing Clinic

Why you should go: Scenario 1 – you love fishing and want to share that joy with your kid but you aren’t a great teacher. Scenario 2 – you don’t know how to fish but think it could be fun so you sign up the kid and you get in for free!
Kid’s Fishing Program at Juno Beach Pier
Juno Beach Pier| 9-11AM |$10 per kid | Details

Jupiter Farmer’s Market
El Sol | 9AM-1:30PM | Free | Details
