Miami, Fla. – July 11, 2019 – Every Sunday is Family Day at Magic City Jai-Alai from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. through November 24. Live action jai-alai performances are the backdrop to a family-centered interactive afternoon featuring an inflatable double slide, face painting, balloon animals and more. At the end of the jai-alai games, children have the opportunity to go on the jai-alai court and meet the players. Plus, moms enjoy a pampering surprise every week!
“Family Day at Magic City is a win-win afternoon that offers refuge from the rain and South Florida heat, as parents enjoy live jai-alai and kids revel in the kid-focused attractions! It’s free to park, free to enter and free to play. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday and a fun way to introduce jai-alai to a new generation of fans,” said Scott Savin, Chief Operating Officer of Magic City Casino.
Because they’ve gotta eat, there’s also plenty of child-friendly fare at reasonable prices, and kids under 10 eat free at the Magic City buffet with the purchase of an adult buffet. It’s only $15 for an all-you-can-eat feast of delicious Brunch favorites. As if the afternoon couldn’t get sweeter, Candy Landia, a retro-inspired candy shop operated by South Florida food blogger Burger Beast, is located on the ground floor of the building and offers the kids the sugar fix they desperately seek. You’re welcome!
