Pokémon have invaded Palmetto Bay and we are looking for Pokémon GO Players to join us at Palmetto Bay Park on Saturday, August 27 as we lure them out to be captured from 4-8 pm. Do you have what it takes to catch them all?

Best costume wins a prize! Food trucks from Food Truck Invasion will be there selling a variety of delicious foods, deserts, and beverages. There will be a live DJ, photo booth, and much more. Remember to share event photos using #EventsPalmettoBay to win prizes.

Event parking will be located inside the park with additional parking available at the former Total Back parking lot located at 17945 Franjo Road and Village Hall, located at 9705 E. Hibiscus Street. Both satellite parking lots will lead you into the park grounds. Click here for more information.
