The fifth season of Park After Dark programming at Biscayne National Park includes special programs from January to March. Bring the family out and enjoy fun nighttime activities.
This year’s season consists of the following events:
- January 25 – It’s all about New Year’s resolutions. Ranger Maria will reflect on your New Year’s resolution by the campfire. She will share stories from across the National Park Service for inspiration on how to turn your new year’s resolution into action for an intentional year. Free program begins at 7pm on the front lawn of the Dante Fascell Visitor Center. (Sunset is at 6:01pm.)
- February 29 – How about a Story Slam on Leap Day? Join in for what is sure to be a great evening of true, personal stories told live. The theme will be “LEAPing Into Nature” If you have a story to tell about a time you took a leap into nature, please email Gary Bremen at firstname.lastname@example.org. This free program begins at 7pm on the front lawn of the Dante Fascell Vistior Center. (Sunset is at 6:23pm.)
- March 28 – Ever heard the music of Florida’s resident in song, Grant Livingston? Come listen to Grant’s combination of wit, care, and passion that drive his music. This free program begins at 7pm on the front lawn of the Dante Fascell Visitor Center. (Sunset is at 7:37pm.)
For each scheduled event, the Convoy Point Grounds and the Dante Fascell Vistior Center will remain open until 9pm. Additionally, there will be a campfire, s’mores, and telescopes (provided by Homestead Astronomy) at each event. All events are family friendly so picnic dinners are welcomed and bring a picnic blanket or a comfortable lawn chair. Program support provided by the South Florida National Parks Trust. For more information on any event, call the Dante Fascell Visitor Center at (786) 335-3620.
