Pitbull named 2016 Winterfest Boat Parade grand marshal

The Winterfest Boat Parade has picked this year’s grand marshal. Celebrities from all over have held the honor, but this year the committee did not have to look outside SoFlo.

He’s a Grammy-winning global superstar, landing No. 1 hits in over 15 countries, who’s proud to call South Florida home. And he’s just been selected as your 2016 Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade grand marshal.

Pitbull, Mr. 305 to Mr. Worldwide, aka Armando Christian Pérez, rose from the streets of Miami to exemplify the American dream and achieve international success. He merged hip-hop with Cuban swing, hot flavors and a reggaeton bounce.

This Miami native owns a style that’s indisputably his own, producing No. 1 hits around the world, 70 million singles sold and six million albums sold. He continues to ring in the new year as host of “Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution,” and had appeared in the hit series “Empire,” seen on WSVN-TV.

And when he’s not busy building his own empire within the business world, Pitbull is busy giving back to the community, serving as an ambassador for Sports Leadership and Management Charter Schools, or SLAM. He encourages quality education for children from all walks of life.

Award-winning performer, business entrepreneur, global superstar and friend to our community, Pitbull is now your Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade grand marshal.
