2018 Boca Raton Walk to End Alzheimer's

On Sunday, October 28, 2018, the Alzheimer’s Association's Walk to End Alzheimer’s returns to Mizner Park in Downtown Boca Raton. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, there are currently 5.7 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease, with this number expected to rise to nearly 14 million by the year 2050. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, education, and research. This inspiring event is held annually in over 600 communities nationwide, calling on participants of all ages to help join the fight against this pervasive disease.

The Alzheimer’s Association is a global organization whose mission is to advance Alzheimer’s care, support, and research worldwide. The organization’s critical work involves providing the necessary care & support to all those facing the disease, driving research toward prevention, treatment and, eventually, a cure, and advocating for the rights and needs of people affected by Alzheimer’s. By joining in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, your participation & fundraising efforts not only help support the overall mission of the Alzheimer’s Association but will also serve to increase the level of Alzheimer’s awareness right here in our own community.

Boca Pumpkin Patch Festival

Boca Raton Pumpkin Patch Festival

As of September 22, 2018, we have officially said "goodbye Summer and hello Fall",  which for many is the absolute best time of year. When thinking about the Fall season, one of the first things to come to mind, no matter where you live or which season you most prefer, is likely “pumpkins.” From pumpkin carving to pumpkin pie, pumpkin scented candles to pumpkin beer, and the insanely popular pumpkin spice latte that has gained an almost cult-like following, it can be generally agreed that all things “pumpkin” are now synonymous with the Fall season.

As Boca Raton residents, we may not get to experience the crisp, cool air and the changing colors of the leaves that the Fall typically brings, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy all of the great activities and traditions that come with the season-- and yes, that includes pumpkins! On Saturday & Sunday, October 6 & 7, 2018, the Boca Pumpkin Patch Festival returns to Mizner Park Amphitheater, for a two-day, fun-filled Fall celebration! This event will take place from 10 am - 6 pm on both days, offering a full weekend of family-friendly fall festivities!

The main feature of the festival is, of course, the pumpkin patch, where you can select the perfect pumpkin from a huge patch of more than 2,500 pumpkins!...
