Horror Camp for Little Monsters
Registration is now open for the Horror Camp for Little Monsters, a horror-focused summer camp for kids between the ages of 9 and 15 years old. The camp gives children the opportunity to learn the mechanics and techniques of horror as an art form and reveals the mystery of what makes something “scary.” There are hands-on workshops and activities that include learning how to apply makeup and write scripts. The first sessions begin in July. The summer camp is organized by Infinite Abyss Productions, 2304 N. Dixie Hwy., Wilton Manors. Visit creepy.camp for more information.
City approves economic plan
On May 9, commissioners directed city staff to implement the goals outlined by the 2016-2021 Economic Development Strategic Plan, released in December. The goals of the plan include improved signage, getting a commuter rail station built in the city, partnering with other economic development organizations, creating business incentives, improved parking, and tourism promotion. Although the commission told staff to implement the plan, Vice Mayor Justin Flippen said officials needed to pass the plan but they also had the ability to alter it if needed.

Art Gallery 21 exhibit
The art of Mark Baker, Martha DeMarco, Joan Glassman, Doris Goldberg, Mollie Lesnick, and Angie Riserbato will be on display at Art Gallery 21, 600 NE 21 Ct., inside the former Woman’s Club of Wilton Manors. Art Gallery 21 Curator Robert Gross and his assistant, Celia Diaz, have created another showcase of artists to celebrate “the way individuals add beauty to the world with canvas and paint . . . the way that beauty brings us together to share in the joy of creativity . . . and, the way that joy spills over into our daily life, often enriching our lives in ways we hadn’t previously considered.” The exhibit will run until June 12. Art Gallery 21 is free to the public and open Saturdays from 7 to 9 p.m. For more information, visit ArtGallery21.org.
