"Arts in the Park" will bring together city residents and visitors as well as local city businesses and officials to experience and appreciate the value that the arts bring to Hallandale Beach. Music, dance, singing, visual arts, crafts and drama will be presented on stage and throughout the park.
Local artists will make their designs available along with food vendors and activities for children.
