Dear Friends,

I’m not much of a runner. I’ve run a bunch of 5Ks and a couple half-marathons, but have never had the fortitude to commit to training for a full marathon. Marathon runners have extraordinary strength, as do those who line the route providing support for exhausted runners passing by. The attacks this week hit the strongest of us, but what makes a marathon runner what they are is the ability to keep running and not let the pain slow you down, which is what we must do now.

Tonight, the City of West Palm Beach will pay tribute to the City of Boston at Clematis by Night. As a show of solidarity, wear your race/running shirts to show your support of those affected by Monday’s tragedy.

We’ll have a moment of silence at 6 pm, followed by Lou Galterio singing “God Bless America.” At 7:30 p.m., the crowd will join in singing “Sweet Caroline,” the unofficial anthem of the Boston Red Sox, with featured Clematis by Night entertainment, Taylor Road

Friday: Downtown Neighbors Festival on the 500 Block and Bus Loop

Tomorrow, we will have the first Downtown Neighborhood Association (DNA) block party on the 500 block. The party will be from 5:30pm till 7:30pm and will feature the local band Cori Spring and LotSaPapa, artists, vendors, happy hour specials and more.

The West Palm Beach Bus Loop is back, providing trolleys that will circle through Cityplace, Clematis Street and Palm Beach from 6pm till 11pm. Stops on the list are: Brewzzi (CityPlace), Blue Martini (CityPlace), World of Beer, Cha Cha’s, Tin Fish, Longboards, Backyard Bar, Hullabaloo, O’Shea’s. There will be a post-party at World of Beer.
