Delray Beach is the type of coastal town that has it all: unobstructed beaches, shops, the restaurants and definitely, the entertainment.  A little bit for everyone to enjoy.  Delray does a great job with its festivals and fairs.  They close a main street and fill it to capacity with vendors, musicians and artists in a blink of an eye.  When is all over done with, it comes down just as fast as it went up. 
Come on downtown on Thursday, January 27th for Art & Jazz On The Avenue.  Once a month, during the season, and on a Thursday from 6-10 pm, live musical entertainment is presented, On the Avenue.  Open house specials, and gallery exhibitions are will be browsed at the very least.  Even though it is On the Avenue, it will also extend to the SW 5th Avenue Plaza.
