Summer is a time for enjoying the beach, bonfires, and travels. However, for some of us, the season will also include partaking in one or even two outdoor music festivals. For many people, festivals are a very particular experience. Most festivals happen in cities where they are most likely to be the only festival in the whole year, so it is the moment everyone expect to attend the event as it is an awesome opportunity to hang out with friends while enjoying their favorite music.
West Palm Beach has the traditional SunFest during the first week of May. While it still is officially spring season we are so used to extreme hot temperatures that we go from winter to Summer dubbing spring our early summer.
The great thing about Florida is that you just garb some summer t-shirts and shorts pants, slip into comfy sandals and you are good to go the whole day. This make it a perfect suggestion to invest in experiences instead of things. A music festival like SunFest and all the events organized during the time it takes place will always be a wonderful and unrepeated experience.
As we are getting ready for SunFest, matching the vibe of the event is always best to wear something loose to help you move around and dance more easily. You are not to spend the whole day out on the sun as SunFest usually starts at 5PM and by noon on weekends, but with the high temperatures of Florida, loose clothing will be appropriate to transition from hot daylight hours into a casual layback evening feeling the breeze of the waterfront.
Wearing denim is not recommended, as this can become quite heavy when wet in case there’s a chance of rain or if you sweat while dancing. I can also cause skin irritation if the day is particularly humid.
Good footwear is important as you might take some time walking around the area, either going from one stage to the other, browsing along the floating barges or cruising on foot along Flagler drive to get food, meet people or find a place to sit down by the waterfront and relax over an amicable conversation with friends. Dancing will tire out your feet; so if you like to dance, wearing comfortable shoes is crucial.
