The Winterfest Boat Parade is a unique holiday icon in South Florida since 1970. It is our version of the Macy's Day Parade. Alumni will have the opportunity to enjoy the parade from a prime dock area on the east side of the Intracoastal Waterway. More than 100 boats from 20 feet long to huge megayachts dress up in all kinds of lights and decorations and cruise along the New River and Intracoastal Waterway in Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach.

Registration Includes, light appetizers, salad bar, dinner buffet and dessert.

Refund deadline November 28, 2016.

Thanks to the UDAA for their generous support of this event!
