This year for The Light Up Lauderdale Event on November 26th, they were looking to have 5-10,000 people line the shores of The New River, located in Fort Lauderdale. If you missed the event- the lights are still up and there are many exciting happenings to explore- learn more at http://www.goriverwalk.com/ !
There were cocktails and food available for purchase as they lit up the holiday decorations along the New River where $50,000 worth of lights will glow that very evening in the holiday spirit. This event is produced by The City of Fort Lauderdale and The Riverwalk Trust. The Vice Mayor was there to throw the switch at 6:00 sharp. Red Bull dropped their "Holiday Skydiver" from the sky to land in Esplanade Park at 5:45. This was spectacular and heart stopping! Santa was in attendance! There were Family fun rides, as well as a wonderful Band and MC. As a courtesy Chamber non-profits, The City of Fort Lauderdale and The Riverwalk Trust invited all non profits that would like to set up a table to gain exposure for their charity to display at the event! This was a wonderful opportunity and All Purpose Lifeskills was delighted to be involved!
