ROYAL PALM BEACH, Fla. — This weekend features laughs with the talented Chris Rock, highfalutin cars up for auction at the Barrett-Jackson car show and so much more.

1) Tortuga Music Festival
The Tortuga Music Festival takes place this weekend, but if you don't have tickets, you're out of luck. Fort Lauderdale Beach's three-day music festival is sold out.

2) Barrett-Jackson — West Palm Beach
Barrett-Jackson's car auction is back at the South Florida Fairgrounds Thursday, April 7 - Saturday, April 9. This is the first car show since the coronavirus pandemic.

Included in the hundreds of cars up for auction are 35 vehicles from the Cars of Dreams Museum located in North Palm Beach.

At the gate, tickets start at $40 for adults and $12 for kids.

3) Gay Polo — Wellington

Gay polo returns to The International Polo Club Palm Beach. Friday, April 8, is the Senator Cup Preliminary with matches at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. Saturday, April 9, the first match begins at 10:30 a.m. as the colorful and spirited Tailgate Competition takes place off the field.

It's all about the Tailgate
"I would be a little naive if I thought people were here just for the polo. I mean, it really is polo and a party. So what happens on side of the field and off the field is equally as entertaining and thrilling as what's happening on the field. When you see the tailgate, you realize that these are not thrown up overnight. There's really some creative planning and forethought that's put into this and the decorations that come out of it are incredible. We've had someone decorate like the Pan Am first-class cabin of an airline. We had the Titanic one year we've had a zoo we've had 1950s Cutting curl hair salon, brilliant, brilliant, creative presentations on the tailgates," said Gay Polo League founder Chip McKinney.

Tickets start at $30 plus tax and fee.

4) Burgers, Blues & Brews — Port St. Lucie
Bring your chairs and blankets and enjoy a variety of burgers, ice-cold beers, a corn-hole tournament, and a Blue Brothers Tribute. The free event is on Saturday from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. at Tradition Square in Port St. Lucie. The Jake and Elwood's Blues Revue perform at 7 p.m.

"[The Jake and Elwood's Blues Revue] brings the Blues Brothers back to life. I get goosebumps telling you about it, and you really feel like you're watching the originals. Right? Like you're watching Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi," said spokesperson Jerry Somma.
