The non-profit Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History will premiere the eleventh annual Children & Parents Day celebrating the Blueberry Fruit on Sunday, March 5, 2017.

Sponsors include Lipman Family Farms, The Palm Beach Post, Macaroni Kid Boynton Beach & Lake Worth, Macy’s, Iris Apfel, Boris & Edith Rueger Fund andthe Patricia Ann Ravo Fund.
The theme for the eleventh annual Children & Parents Day in Boynton Beach, Florida is celebrating the Blueberry Fruit and National Nutrition Month. Since the 1890s, Blueberry farming has been in Florida. This family day event has evolved to incorporate healthy eating presentations, culinary demos, kids cooking classes, art-making for kids and their families; and literacy activities. The blueberry fruit theme will be incorporated in all aspects of the one-day event that involves live blueberry painting, arts and crafts workshops conducted by local artists, storybook reading, face painting, souvenir photos, kids exercise activity, cooking demos and a kids cooking class. The six-course blueberry-infused all-you-can-eat farm-to-table buffet is being designed by high school students in the South Tech Culinary Academy of Boynton Beach, Florida. Some other activities will be led by Amanda Johnson of the Amanda James Gallery; The Home Depot; Chef Anna Orlando of Palermo’s Bakery; Blue Bell Creameries, Florida Farm Bureau Federation and Artisans of the Ave Gallery.
Lori J. Durante of the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History who developed the annual family day program says “Children & Parents Day engages the senses with educational and fun activities for the whole family.”
