Fort Lauderdale, FL (October 24, 2022) – The highlight of the October 21, 2022 Winterfest Launch Party illuminated another first for the Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade – not one, not two but three Grand Marshals.  Justin Wyborn, vice president and assistant general manager of Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, made the announcement of three music icons from the 80s, 90s and 2000s will be co-Grand Marshals – Taylor Dayne, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick respectively, will serve as co-Grand Marshals. 

“Winterfest is so excited to have these three iconic entertainers perform at the Grand Marshal Reception on board the Fifth Third Grand Marshal showboat,” said Lisa Scott-Founds, President & CEO of Winterfest®, Inc. “The Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest® Boat Parade will be a floating concert with performances from the start to the finale.”

The Grand Marshals will kick off the 2022 Winterfest Boat Parade riding aboard the lead yacht, performing for and addressing the thousands of parade partiers and views along the 12-mile New River and Intracoastal parade route, and parade viewers watching on WSVN-TV.  Parade Viewers at the Public Viewing Area presented by Baptist Health will be in for a special treat, as the parade makes its way towards Pompano Beach. 

Taylor Dayne’s career launched in the 1980s with a groundbreaking debut single, “Tell It To My Heart.”  A successful string of singles followed earning Dayne three Grammy nominations, and an American Music Award. She has sold over 75 million albums and singles worldwide.

Joey Fatone first rose to fame as a member of the record-shattering, multi-platinum boyband *NSYNC—Over the past decade, he has gone on to find success as an actor, host, Broadway star, voiceover artist, dancer, and media personality with several successful television shows under his belt.

Chris Kirkpatrick is a founding member of the multi-platinum-selling Grammy-nominated pop group, *NSYNC. After the success of their debut release in Europe, *NSYNC went on to dominate the Billboard charts in the United States with their self-titled album which went on to become certified 10x platinum. The 2000 release of “No Strings Attached” debuted at #1 with 2.4 million albums sold in one week, which held the record for most album sales in the first day and week for 15 years and became the bestselling album of 2000. 

Fun Fact: All three Grand Marshals have been on the television show The Masked Singer on Fox (Taylor as Popcorn in Season 4, Joey as the Rabbit in Season 1, and Chris as the Hummingbird in Season 8). 

Other entertainment lined up to perform within the Parade is the TikTok Country Duo TigirLily, three-piece bands Kerst Lehmann & Black Tie Optional, and Ricky Valido & The Hialeah Hillbillies and the Santa Finale with holiday music sponsored by Amazon. The parade will be heralded by fireworks sponsored by Kroger Delivery.

In addition to their parade appearances, the three Grand Marshals will be part of a private Winterfest® Grand Marshal Reception at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, presented by Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center on Friday, Dec. 9 and will be performing at the event, another first for the Winterfest organization.
