The third and final presidential debate, pitting Democratic incumbent Barack Obama against Republican rival Mitt Romney, will unfold Oct. 22 at Lynn University in Boca Raton.

The small school captured the coup one year ago when the Commission on Presidential Debates selected the 2,100-student campus as the site.

As the political action draws international attention to a stage in southern Palm Beach County, it also will attract hundreds of locals to the Maltz Jupiter Theatre in Jupiter. The award-winning regional theater around the corner from Waterfront Properties and Club Communities’ headquarters quietly is tucked away behind the oceanfront condos in Jupiter. It will come alive during a well-planned, community-wide, patriotic salute to the election.

The theater is billing it as the sole presidential-debate-viewing party in northern Palm Beach County.

The public is invited to wear red, white and blue and show American pride by attending the free screening. It is co-sponsored by the Black Chamber of Commerce of Palm Beach County, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Palm Beach County and the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. American-themed food and drinks will be available for purchase, and raffle tickets for prizes will be available. Guests will be seated by 7:30 p.m. for pre-debate festivities.

Onstage performances feature the Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Honor Guard and Pipes and Drums Corps, as well as students from Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s Paul and Sandra Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts.

The pre-debate events at Lynn University will begin at 8:30 p.m. with remarks from university officials. The 9 p.m. telecast debate will be moderated by CBS’s Bob Schieffer.

Media from all over the world will descend on South Florida for the debate, turning all eyes on an area that now will be known as much for its political prominence as it is for its Palm Beach County waterfront real estate.
