The only thing better than celebrating the holiday season is celebrating the holiday season celebrated in the city, especially in Fort Lauderdale. The area’s unique cultural background brings diverse events that are eclectic, enjoyable and in the spirit of the season. Whether you want to mark ‘holiday shopping’ off of your to-do list, catch the area’s best holiday light show, or try sledding down a snowy hill, Fort Lauderdale lets you do it all.These three events are some of our favorite ways to celebrate.
Panthers in the Park Ice Skating Rink
Returning to Bubier Park for another year, the Panthers in the Park Ice Skating Rink is an 80×40 foot rink complete with a holiday display. From November 26th to January 8th, residents can make-up for the lack of winter weather in their area with a pair of skates and a ticket to play on the rink. After you’ve rode around on the rink a few times, stroll down Las Olas Boulevard for a quick bite to warm you up. Whether you’re a seasoned skater or getting started, it’s an experience that you’ll enjoy.
Fort Lauderdale Orange Bowl Downtown Countdown
There’s truly only one way to end the holiday season in Fort Lauderdale, and it’s with the biggest New Year’s Eve celebration on the block. On December 31st, along S.W. 2nd Avenue and S.W. 5th Avenue, kids can enjoy bounce houses, face painting, and their own new year’s countdown at 7 P.M.while the grownups can celebrate the night away with live music, food, and drinks.
