Surfside, FL rides healthy wave with Paddletopia Festival
Head to Surfside, Florida for the town’s first-ever Paddletopia. Presented by Surfside’s tourism bureau, this groovy two-day affair will transform the 96th Street waterfront park in Miami’s Uptown Beachtown into a FREE weekend-long festival with paddle boarding, wellness brands, fitness demos, healthy snacks and family activities from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on May 19 & 20, 2018.
Paddletopia will feature stand-up paddle boarding along the Intracoastal; wellness expo with fitness classes and family boot camp by Sweat Studio Miami; an eco-fashion showcase courtesy of tropical knitwear label KRELwear and Pink Coral Miami; live DJ, “chill out” lounges under colorful pergola tents and much more. Stay fueled with healthy fare available for purchase from a retrofitted vintage trailer, as well as free smoothie and juice samples from Maison Meneau and veggie ice cream scoops by Peekaboo Ice Cream.
Complimentary paddle boards in partnership with Miami Beach Paddle Board and kayaks will be available to use at a pop-up dock on the waterway, bordering the park. Additional kids’ activities will include an eco-friendly ball pit, a graffiti “train” where children can decorate an inflatable subway car, and a fishing pond. Participants can also enter into contests for a chance to win neat prizes and giveaways.
