We recommend you take the night off! Though we love children (and hope you always consider the Richard and Pat Johnson Palm Beach County History
Museum – operated by the Historical Society and located in the Historic Court House in downtown West Palm Beach – a free destination for your entire family and school groups) we think they may not fit into the revelry. Adult beverages are being served and stores are filled with priceless antiques…..
