Drive-In Movies 

West Palm Beach will be kicking off a series of drive-in movies in their new Show on the Go series. Taking place in August and September, these pop-up movies will take place at both Dreher Park and Currie Park. The cost is just $10 per carload or $30 if you want the VIP treatment — Think parking in the first 2 rows, a family 4-pack of popcorn, non-alcoholic beverages and candy. The movies start at 7 p.m., while the gates open at 6 p.m. For more information, head over to
