Tickets are $8 for those 18 and older. Younger people pay $3. $1 of each adult ticket goes toward the auditorium’s Arts in Education fund. Keep in mind, the Youth Orchestra has not increased the ticket prices. Rather, the Auditorium now charges a steep “ticketing fee” that has resulted in the higher prices. That fee does not benefit the orchestra. Buy tickets online easily here.

The Flagler Palm Coast High School Advisory Council meets at 6 p.m. in the Bulldog Cafe.

Announcements:

A Message From Flagler Beach Government on Dune Walkovers: Effective now, the following Beach Access Stairways or Dune Crossover locations are open for public usage in Flagler Beach:

dune walkovers

Please utilize the above Beach Access/Dune Crossovers only. Do not walk on or across the Sea Dunes to prevent further erosion of the Dune system. City Ordinance 6-9 prohibits the destruction, harm, molestation, cutting, harvesting, removal or eradication or cause of destruction of any plant life on the Dune areas within the City, east of Highway A1A. Please do not attempt to utilize closed Beach Access/Dune Crossover locations. Closed locations have clearly visible yellow “Caution” tape and wooden boards blocking access. These locations have been deemed unstable and have hereby been closed for public safety. Please utilize caution when accessing the Beach at the above locations, as there may be a varied distance between the last step of the Beach Access Points and the sand. The City will be working to re-open as many Dunes Access Points, both North and South of SR100, before March 1, 2018.
