Concilio will make an in-store appearance at Ulta Beauty in Clearwater on Saturday, where a Smashbox makeup artist can help you achieve that perfect glow. An in-store purchase of Smashbox cosmetics is required to meet Concilio, and it would be wise to reserve your spot by calling (727) 724-6498. 2683 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd.

Its parent company, Boaters Republic, is next door and in on the block party, too. You’ll find your fishing needs there, right down to the Yeti cup. Also under the Boaters Republic umbrella is Republic Paddle Company, celebrating a grand opening at 1540 S Dale Mabry Highway. It specializes in watersports equipment including kayaks and paddleboards. The block party is 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday at 2122 S Dale Mabry Highway. ship-chic.com.
