Five Reasons SunFest Is Unusual, in a Good Way

Is it here? Could it possibly be? Why yes, the glory of SunFest is already upon us. And while you print out your schedule and grab the closest highlighter, your favorite stars on the lineup are all making their way around our small bubble. Hard to believe that while other places are still experiencing the tail end of winter (yes, that's a thing), West Palm Beach is already throwing a party in honor of sunshine.

SunFest is something special -- more than just a concert, it has become a full experience. It's the type of week that you arrange your entire year around. It's the best time to party hardy in downtown West Palm. But, it's no secret: SunFest is weird. Before you bum rush the stage or detour to the party barges, we want to take a moment and reflect on SunFest. We love it because it's strange. Strange is good.
