2009 Winterfest Boat Parade and River Rock 2009

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty

It's that time of year again! The Winterfest Boat Parade, sponsored by The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and many other Companies, will be held this Saturday, December 12th. The Parade covers a 12-mile Route of the Intracoastal Waterway and the New River. From Yachts to small Boats, the Holiday Decorations are fabulous. The Boat Parade will begin at 6 p.m. (official starting point is the Riverside Hotel) and more than 100 Boats will be participating.

"The Parade encompasses the entire length of Fort Lauderdale, Florida in Broward County. Spectators can view the parade for free in public areas, purchase Grandstand tickets or enjoy the parade at a private party in their home or aboard a multi-million dollar Yacht. The International Festival and Events Association has named Winterfest the top 20th Parade in the World; with over 50,000 parades in the United States alone, this is a huge international honor. This places Winterfest in the prestigious company of the Macy’s, Mardi Gras, Rose Bowl and Disney Parades."
