Winterfest kicks off holiday fun with Family Fun Day

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - The Winterfest Boat Parade doesn’t set sail until mid-December, but this weekend, revelers of all ages got a first taste of holiday fun.

Children met Santa, got their faces painted and played games all, while enjoying the view of the Fort Lauderdale River.

“It’s a great way for us to share with the community that Winterfest is coming in a couple of weeks, so it’s a free family day, lots of activities, as you can see,” said event director Dawn Read.

The Winterfest Boat Parade takes place Dec. 14.

WSVN is pleased to be a proud and longtime sponsor of the event. For more information, click here.
