FUNTASTIC FRIDAYS FOR KIDS
Looking for something fun to do with your kids on Friday nights in Hollywood Beach, Florida? That’s probably a silly question for most of you parents but, hey, if we didn’t ask, you’d probably end up sitting around the house bored playing yet another in a series of board games. Well, be bored no more. Funtastic Fridays For Kids takes place every Friday night at ArtsPark at Young Circle from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. To say that there’s a lot going on would be the understatement of the century (though that maybe a slight overstatement, but you get the idea). There is live entertainment, including a DJ, magicians, and Mama Clown and Friends. And there are activities aplenty, such as games, a bouncy house, and face painting. This free family-friendly event was recently ranked number 8 on the “Top 10 Places to Take the Kids” list in a survey conducted in 2012 by South Florida TV station WPLG.
If you’ve never been to ArtsPark at Young Circle, it’s located in downtown Hollywood and it covers 10 beautiful acres.
It’s got lots of green space, paved promenades that are great for strolling, and a play area for kids with an interactive fountain. You can bring a blanket and have a picnic dinner. Or you can take advantage of a great deal offered by several restaurants in the downtown area: kids eat free on Fridays from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. And there’s a wealth of restaurants from which to choose that serve every cuisine you can think of. Savor Asian meals at Chinatopia, Hello Sushi, and Tokyo Grill. Enjoy Italian dishes at Mama Mia Italian Ristorante, Mauro’s Pizza, Café Italia, and Papa John’s Pizza. Delectable Latin food can be found at Argentango, Delicias Peruanas, Kussifay, and Marquis Restaurant. And don’t miss out on sweet treats at such fine dessert destinations as Café Volare, El Cafecito, and Uncle Louie G’s Italian Ices.
