Our Family Fun day is packed with exciting Fort Lauderdale family activities where you can win prizes from South Florida Ford, get your face painted by our lovely artists, check out the Florida Renaissance Pirate Ship, hang out with the most adorable puppies from Danielle Pet Rescue Row, and so much more. There are even plenty of opportunities for photo ops with Santa, Stanley the Panther, and other surprise guests. While participating in our Fort Lauderdale family activities, you can enjoy the sounds of the Shane Duncan Band who will be bringing us back in time to the 80s (in tune with our Winterfest theme) with their live performance. School of Rock, the South Florida Cloggers, and other guests will also be taking the stage during our family fun in Fort Lauderdale as well. Did we mention that we have a REAL Ice Rink* for kids and parents to skate on? Get your ice skating on with our expansive outdoor ice rink, generously donated by the Florida Panthers.
