Riviera Beach, FL (December 5, 2017) – On November 27th, the Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (RBCRA) hosted the Creativity Station Open House at the Riviera Beach Marina Event Center located at 190 E 13th Street, Riviera Beach.

The Max M. Fisher Boys and Girls Club Marching Band opened the event with an exciting drumline repertoire and Digital Vibe entertained with music and dance as parents gathered to pre-register to RBCRA’s new winter, spring break and summer camps, as well as for the Small Business Resource Center.

“Our goal with these new camps is to provide youth and adults with real world educational and training tools,” said Scott Evans, interim executive director of Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency. “The diversity of these programs exposes children to find something they are passionate about at an early age.”
