Winterfest Flashback to 2012

2012 welcomed back Southern Wine & Spirits to the Winterfest Celebration with the return Moet & Chandon as the sponsor of the Black-Tie Ball with a special performance of “Wicked” and a live auction item by JM Lexus, a 2013 ES350. 

With the theme “Musical Memories”, the parade hosted, for the first time, a replica of an 1812 tall ship – The Lynx, giant reindeer from the Galleria Mall, the return of Biscayne Lady, Big 105.9 Paul & Young Ron – Anthony Coal Fired Pizza entry, Grand Marshal Showboat powered by Ford, and paddleboarders. The Baptist Health Santa Showboat returns with the Jolly ol’ Man and more.

Winterfest continues its charity initiative encouraging parade entries to promote a charity in the parade. The Parade went “National” with Inside Edition’s Deborah Norville as Grand Marshal showcasing the event on her television show.
