Travel industry experts select 20 events per month, and STS publicizes them throughout the United States. The complete list is published on two websites: Southeast Tourism Society and Travel Media Press Room.

December 9, 2017, Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade, Fort Lauderdale, FL, https://WinterfestParade.com/

The world’s most watched parade travels the Intracoastal waterways, 12 miles in Broward County from Fort Lauderdale, north to Lake Santa Barbara in Pompano Beach. The parade hosts brightly embellished boats carrying celebrities, musical groups, beauty queens and other thrilling entries such as a floating Broadway barge. The theme for the parade is “Broadway on Parade.” The International Festival and Events Association named Winterfest to its top 20 Parades in the World. Come see why 1 million people come to watch this holiday spectacle every year!

“The Southeast Tourism Society’s Top 20 Festival and Event list is an excellent guide for the Southeast’s visitors, residents and travel writers.  The events selected represent the best, and often most unique, activities in our region,” said Bill Hardman, president and CEO of the Southeast Tourism Society.
