Inside Surfside’s First Fridays

By: Surfside Oct 20, 2017


First Fridays Showcases the Surfside Community

We’re taking a look back at First Fridays, our summer beach picnic series designed for the whole family. A Surfside signature, First Fridays wrapped up its second summer season to great acclaim!

Taking place on Surfside’s beautiful beach (our communal "backyard"), First Fridays is just one more way to celebrate our community and for visitors to experience the best of the Surfside lifestyle.

“First Fridays is a relaxed, fun and family-oriented event where everyone can come together to enjoy the beauty of Surfside,” says Sarah Liss, Surfside resident and First Fridays organizer. The event originally started as a gathering among friends and family of Surfside residents and has naturally expanded to include more activities that have attracted visitors from all corners of Miami and beyond.


First Fridays Takes on Global Inspiration

This year, First Fridays events took us around the world with inspiration from areas such as the Mediterranean and the Caribbean for both visitors and residents. The global themes informed the day, inspiring the food, the decor and the activities for the afternoon.

We listened to the Americana sounds of a Blue Grass Band, learned new dance moves from Bollywood dancers and stretched away our stress with yoga – all at First Fridays!


This Year’s Themes

May - Moroccan

June - Caribbean

July - Americana

August - Bollywood

September - Mediterranean

More than ever, this year’s series of events connected the Surfside community with the world around us – drawing in friends and neighbors from near and far. Stay tuned for developments on next year’s events!
