The unique experience will include a car trip down the ‘Runway of blinking lights’ before visiting the Elf’s Toy Factory before finally stopping off at Santa’s Cabin– sort of like a Christmas Safari.

You are welcome to wear their favorite Christmas pajamas or ugly sweaters as they travel through the experience and the most important thing all the kids can bring their letter to Santa.

Rocking a red ribbon not only completes any outfit; it shows everyone – especially people living with HIV and their families – your support. On Tuesday, December 1 at 8:30 a.m. The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center (WAM) will present the official kick-off to World AIDS Day, founded in 1988 and themed this year as Rock the Ribbon. Hosted by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, the event will feature special guests Chuck Panozzo, Styx rock band member, and Laura Vivas, recording artist and former contestant on The Voice.

World AIDS Museum will gather elected officials, fellow HIV-related agencies and other stakeholders. Attendees will embrace this community gathering with special performances by Laura Vivas and the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus under the direction of Gary Keating. DJ Aulden Brown will add his flair to rock the crowd.

Special guest Styx rock band member Chuck Panozzo will be one of the voices heard as to why this day is so important. Charles Salvatore “Chuck” Panozzo is an American musician best known as the bass player for the rock band Styx. A longtime member of Styx, he founded the group with his fraternal twin brother, drummer John Panozzo, who died in July 1996, and singer/keyboardist Dennis De Young. He toured part-time from 1999 to 2003, and currently tours with Styx on a regular basis.

Chuck Panozzo is openly gay and has been out since 2001. That year, he also announced that he is living with HIV, and has been involved in campaigning for AIDS awareness and gay rights. In 2006, he spoke with Frontiers for the first time about his decision to come out. The following year, he released his autobiography “The Grand Illusion: Love, Lies, and My Life with Styx.”

Laura Vivas will offer a live performance that will coincide with the rock theme. Her blind audition on NBC’s hit show The Voice, Season 3, resulted in a spot on Christina Aguilera’s team. A native of Puerto Rico, Vivas’ career began at age 18 singing back-up for local artists. Since 2007, she has been the lead singer and the lone female in a six-piece South Florida cover band called Re-Mix. She has opened for artists such as Roberta Flack, Chaka Khan, Bruce Hornsby and more.

The event, sponsored by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, Seasons 52, Michael Murphy Photography and GPR | Goodman Public Relations, will be open to the public and take place outdoors under the covered valet parking entrance. Facial coverings will be required. Attendees are encouraged to register in advance at www.worldaidsmuseum.org.

South Florida’s favorite Halloween show, IT’S JUST A BUNCH OF HOCUS POCUS* (previously Hocus Pocus Live) is landing at The Kelsey Theater in Lake Park for two nights of holiday fun on October 30 and 31 (performances are at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. each night; each runs 1 hour and 15 minutes). Tickets are on sale with the opportunity to save $10.

Following eight consecutive years of instant sell-outs, the wildly popular all-ages tribute show brings Halloween’s most beloved classic to life with incredible detail. The audience is invited to take a dive into ‘90s nostalgia as South Florida’s top drag performers transform into the film’s iconic characters. All are invited to join this limited-seating, socially distanced event as they tell the story of three wacky witches, accidentally resurrected by teen pranksters on Halloween night in 1993. The dynamic lead cast includes Nicole Halliwell as Winifred Sanderson, Calypso Monroe as Sarah Sanderson and Nicky Monet as Mary Sanderson.

Produced and created by South Florida’s drag mastermind Nicole Halliwell (TLC’s I am Jazz, America’s Got Talent, Queenz The Drag Experience), IT’S JUST A BUNCH OF HOCUS POCUS boasts intricately detailed sets, eerily uncanny lookalikes, replica props and costuming, and more in this immersive stage spectacle. Going light years beyond your standard “drag show,” there’s nothing quite like this! Prior to each performance, audiences can enjoy “Wicked Villains,” a “delightfully evil preshow,” starring the cast of QUEENZ The Drag Experience as even more fabulous female impersonators transform into such favorite cartoon villains like Maleficent, Ursula, Cruella DeVille, and The Evil Queen.

Tickets are now on sale starting at $65 for general admission, and $75 for “front row” VIP, which includes a souvenir gift pack. To save $10 off any ticket, use coupon code SAVE10 at checkout to unlock discounted tickets which can be purchased by visiting www.hocuspocuslive.net, by calling The Kelsey Theater at (561) 328-7481, or the Boca Black Box Theater at (561) 483-9036. Performance tickets will be limited to comply with COVID-19 community health and safety guidelines. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the show’s displaced and furloughed cast of entertainers due to the pandemic. *Celebrity impersonators, no affiliation with the Walt Disney Company.

The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, recognized as Broward County’s premier shopping destination, has announced emerging songstress Carly Jo Jackson as its next featured performer on Happy Hour with The Galleria, a virtual music series, scheduled for Thursday, June 4, at 5 p.m. on Facebook Live.

With a voice filled with grit and soul, Carly Jo Jackson brings the heat of the Florida sunshine to all she does. She has a vocal tone that is as infectious as her charismatic stage presence. She caught the attention of some big names in the music and entertainment business, opening shows for Michael McDonald (who also provided vocals on her recent EP), Kenny Loggins and Dennis Quaid and serving as a musical inspiration to Jeff Bridges who recently featured her on his Sleep Club website. Other notable performances include her 2014 appearance on America’s Got Talent, where she appeared in two televised episodes and advanced to Judgement Week; performing as an Emerging Artist at 2018’s Summerfest; singing backup vocals to Kenny Loggins at 2019’s Hawaii Songwriters Festival; performing at the renowned 30A Songwriters Festival along with Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile, Shawn Mullins, Livingston Taylor and more; opening a San Francisco 49ers game; and winning the 2015 Belk Southern Musician Showcase. In late 2019, she released her EP Au Naturel, produced by Chris Pelonis and Lost Coast Records and distributed by Jimmy Buffet’s Cherry Bomb Records.

Launched in April on Facebook Live, Happy Hour with The Galleria has successfully entertained thousands in the local community during the COVID-19 quarantine. Jackson will join previous Happy Hour with The Galleria virtual music performers Alexander Star, The Tim Charron Band and Tori Rossi Music and WILL PLUS. These archived recorded livestream performances can be found at facebook.com/GalleriaFtLauderdale.

The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale has already welcomed shoppers back with limited hours and additional safety measures according to government guidelines. Seasons 52, The Capital Grille and P.F. Chang’s China Bistro now offer full-service dining in addition to take-out and delivery service. Please visit www.galleriamall-fl.com/current-updates-due-to-covid-19 for additional details.

Cost: $100

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will host its 25th annual History Makers fundraiser on Tuesday, March 31, at 6 p.m., at the Superyacht Pavilion facility on the south grounds of Pier Sixty-Six Hotel & Marina (2301 SE 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale). This year’s honorees are The Denison Family (Broward Marine), Broward County yachting industry forerunners, who will receive a History Makers Pioneer Family Award and the Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF), which will be honored with a Legacy Business Award for its 60 years of industry and service at the event that commends individuals and companies who have made an impact on the growth of the City of Fort Lauderdale. Previous History Maker honorees have included The Forman Family, “Alligator Ron” Bergeron, City Commissioner Steven Glassman, developer Dev Motwani, H. Wayne Huizenga, Chris Evert and Jimmy Evert, The Sun-Sentinel, Winterfest and Susan and Buddy Lochrie.

The Denison’s company, Broward Marine, and its workforce, were largely responsible for much of the marine industry that developed over the course of their 50 years of yacht construction that started on the south fork of the New River in Fort Lauderdale. In 1948, on their honeymoon, Frank and Gertrude Denison decided to buy a boat yard on the New River and shortly, thereafter, became the largest employer in Broward County, as well as the largest defense contractor in Florida. The contracts they secured for the construction of US Navy minesweepers during this time period led to the construction of large motor yachts. The Denison’s yachting business, launched in the early 1950s with the construction of the largest yacht built in the US, post WWII, the ALISA V, eventually led them to become most prolific large yacht builder in the world in 1993. The first of only two yacht builders in the US to have received this recognition.

The Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF) is the largest marine trade organization in the Southeast United States dedicated to promoting, protecting, and growing the 111,000 middle class jobs in Broward County and 142,000 jobs regionally in marine businesses promoting boating lifestyles from family cruising and fishing to yachts and the goods and services that sustain them, driving the economic output to $8.9 billion in Broward County and $12 billion regionally. Created in 1961, the nonprofit trade group is focused on the sound growth of the marine industry in the South Florida Region to benefit its members, their customers, communities and the environment. The Association has over 500 members in Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach Counties and is the owner of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Through the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, advocacy efforts, programs and services of MIASF have combined to raise the professionalism of the industry and awareness of its impact and contributions by the public, elected, and regulatory officials at the local, state, and federal levels. Members have fostered a reputation for the region to be known as the goods and service center of the world for the yachting and marine community.

This year’s event will also celebrate the city’s 109th birthday with cocktails, food stations and entertainment.

Tickets for this year’s 25th anniversary History Makers fundraiser are $100 (online service charges not included) and can be purchased online at http://bit.ly/HFLHistoryMakers2020 or via email at info@flhc.org. Tickets are limited.

– Miami Parking Authority

About Transform 5th Street:
The focus of this project is to transform SW 5th Street between SW 3rd Ave and 4th Ave in Little Havana into a fully accessible public space for all community members. The street currently separates Jose Marti Park into two isolated sections but can quickly become a space where community members can gather, community events will occur, and people feel safer and more attracted to the park overall.

Working with Little Havana residents, we are bringing a series of activities and events — all inspired by local community members — to SW 5th Street. The goal is to close the street for pedestrian and community use, as an extension of the Jose Marti Park area.

301 Biscayne Boulevard Miami, FL 33132

Close out 2019 with a bang and welcome the start of the new decade with the biggest free party and concert of the year, hosted by one of the biggest Star in the world – Pitbull. Guests won’t be able to “stop the party” as they ring in the new year with Mr. Worldwide himself, and yell out “Timber” to the iconic ball dropping yet again. Joining the lineup are Paulina Rubio, Nacho, and Willy Chirino. In addition, to the artist lineup there will be Amaury Gutierrez, Darell, DJ Laz, I Am Chino, Carlos Oliva, Los 3 de la Habana, Malena Burke and Lena Burke, Amara La Negra, Eduardo Antonio, Luis Bofill, Karyle Alonso, Marytrini, Miami Girls Tumbao and Las Payasitas de Nifu Nifa that will not only make this the most impressive New Year’s Eve party in Miami, but also one of the biggest Latin music concerts of the year. Pitbull’s Worldwide NYE VIP Food and Wine Party in partnership with SWARM is Miami’s #1 destination to ring in 2020 for its glitz, VIP allure, and exotic food and drink options.

Although the Bayfront Park concert is free and open to the public, Pitbull’s Worldwide NYE VIP Food and Wine Party is a private, limited-ticket event offering guests the ultimate NYE experience with ticket purchase. As 150,000 guests join the party, only a few thousand patrons will have a chance to snag VIP access. The Vip Access will grant guests worldwide-inspired selection with an array of food stations with dishes created by some of South Florida’s most exclusive chefs. In addition to the culinary delights, there will also be an array of signature cocktails crafted by Miami’s Top Bartenders featuring Voli 305 vodka and a champagne toast at midnight to go along with the epic Pitbull performance and epic fireworks display.

For those looking to host their own party within the party, private table packages are also available, which include premium bottle service, unlimited food, cocktails, and an exclusive, elevated experience – literally, as participants will be situated on an elevated riser overlooking the crowds below with a clear view of Pitbull’s NYE performance.

The event is organized by SWARM, the Miami based event agency that has earned a reputation for pushing the boundaries by creating, producing and executing the biggest events for locals and Miami tourists alike to partake in; Pitbull’s Worldwide NYE is no exception. This lavish event will be the most memorable way to ring in the start of a new decade, attracting over 150,000 guests, with only limited VIP tickets available to upgrade the unforgettable experience.

“We wanted to finish the decade off with a bang and who better to partner with than Pitbull.” says CEO of SWARM, Tony Albelo. “He’s got the global star factor, is a Miami native and puts on an incredible show. We are looking forward to an unforgettable New Year’s Eve in Downtown Miami at Bayfront.”

Pitbull’s Worldwide NYE VIP Food and Wine Party will be taking place Monday, December 31st at Bayfront Park located in Downtown Miami. Space is at a premium, so guests should be sure to arrive early to secure a spot. Talent hits the stage starting at 3 p.m. with the main show lineup starting at 7 p.m. For a more intimate and exclusive experience, guests can purchase three types of tickets: VIP $295.00, Couples Package $495, upgrade your views to Center Stage $395, or purchase a private table for the ultimate experience. Tickets are limited and reserved tables will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

After another tremendous year, TeamFootWorks, producers of the highly-anticipated Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run presented by Turkish Airlines, announced registration for the 2020 5K Run/Walk is in now open. With more than 38,000 participants in 2019, the race series will once again take over South Florida with three runs beginning in Fort Lauderdale on April 2, continuing in West Palm Beach on April 15 and concluding in Miami on April 23. The United Way (Broward County, Palm Beach County, Miami-Dade County) continues to be the annual race series’ charity partner. The series will donate $1 per race participant respectively to each city’s chapter.

“We are excited to be entering the 36th year of what has been an amazing health and wellness journey for thousands of race participants. With registration now in full swing, team captains are rallying their workplace teams to engage in another year of fun and healthy competition. It’s so gratifying to see so many South Florida companies continue to embrace health and wellness as part of their workplace culture. We believe that healthy employees create healthy companies; add to that a race filled with smiles and camaraderie – that’s what the Mercedes Benz Corporate Run is all about,” said Laurie Huseby, race director.

To generate excitement for the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run presented by Turkish Airlines, TeamFootWorks will host team captain rallies on Wednesday, February 5, in downtown Fort Lauderdale, and on Wednesday, February 12, in downtown Miami.

The run is open to employees of businesses, corporations, government agencies, financial institutions, and non-profits.

Beginners can “ease into exercise” with friends, gain inspiration and motivation to continue walking and running to improve overall health, while competitive runners have the opportunity to shine amongst their co-workers and lead the corporate team to victory. Often this is the first step towards greater health and wellness amongst South Florida employees and their companies.

Nikki Beach Miami Beach has just announced that it is hosting its “20 Years of Celebration” party on December 14, in honor of the global brand’s milestone moment at the venue that started it all. As Nikki Beach’s first location ever, it’s only fitting that the South of Fifth beach club destination will be throwing the grand finale of this global touring event, tied in with the brand’s signature White Party. Tickets start at $50 and are available at https://www.nikkibeachmiamievents.com.

Guests will experience all of the elements that make Nikki Beach so special: music, dining, entertainment, fashion, film and art. The day-to-night party will feature live music and entertainment, a dance troupe and specialty cocktails and wine, including the Nikki Beach x Château Minuty commemorative edition rosé bottle with custom artwork. Nikki Beach’s globally-inspired menu will be highlighted, too, and partygoers will savor the beach club’s best bites, including the brand’s oversized sushi boats, Sexy Salad and Famous Chicken Satay.

The commemorative “20 Years of Celebration” bash has visited all of Nikki Beach’s locations across the world, from Marbella to Dubai. This December, the festivities will culminate at Nikki Beach Miami Beach during the height of season. And the White Party theme will pay homage to the legendary soiree Naomi Campbell hosted in 2002 for the opening of Nikki Beach Saint Tropez with an all white dress code for her birthday. All of Nikki Beach’s locations host this signature White Party annually to kick off their season, and it has become one of the most coveted invitations for international jetsetters.

Nikki Beach Miami Beach began as a tribute to the late Nicole Penrod. What started as a beautiful garden and beach club for South Beach’s bohemian community quickly grew into the hotspot for celebrities like Michael Douglas, Leonardo DiCaprio and Madonna.

“Nikki Beach was created to celebrate the life of my daughter Nicole,” says Jack Penrod, Nikki Beach’s owner and founder. “We did not have any plans to become a global brand,” says Nikki Beach Global Chief Executive Officer, Lucia Penrod. “The magic between our family concept and our customers loyal following created a demand. It was then that we decided to strategically expand Nikki Beach worldwide, while keeping the core message behind Nikki Beach, which is a Celebration of Life.”

Today, Nikki Beach has 13 beach clubs and 5 hotels and resorts across the world, with more locations in the pipeline.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and nothing sets the Holiday Season into full swing more than the lighting of Downtown Miami’s Christmas Tree. The iconic 50-foot tree that sits in the middle of Bayfront Park will serve as the center and focal point of the Bayskate roller-skating rink at Bayfront Holiday Village. On Saturday November 30, it will receive a celebrity filled countdown and illumination worthy of a million twinkling lights. South Florida celebrities and dignitaries will be on-hand to light the tree and set the LED animation into musical motion, including Mayor Francis Suarez of the City of Miami and Commissioner Joe Carollo, Chairman of the Bayfront Park Trust. The tree will trip the light fantastic to three different festive musical shows produced by Grammy winner, A.T. Molina, who is the original producer/creator of the Burrito Sabanero mix. Enrique Santos from Tu949 will join Sasha Jones, Consumer Investigative Reporter for NBC 6 and Alejandra Molina, News Anchor at Telemundo 51, to host the event, along with Santa Claus, who is scheduled to arrive in Miami fashion via a yacht. Together, they will make sure that this tree will continue to serve as Santa’s guiding light to Miami.

“This is a special tree, because after the initial lighting ceremony, we will have mini lighting ceremonies every night all the way through Christmas. Not just every night, but every hour,” says Tony Albelo, SWARM CEO and event organizer. Each night starting at 6PM, the park will become quiet, the music will rev up, and the tree will display one of the most beautifully animated light shows ever sequenced. Those who miss the initial tree-lighting ceremony on November 30, will have an opportunity to experience it again and again while enjoying hot cocoa and churros or sipping seasonal cocktails such as the Peppermint Mojito, Mistletoe Mule, White Christmas Margarita or Winter Bourbon Smash at the North Pole Beach Club.

The lighting of the 50-ft animated tree at Bayfront Holiday Village will mark the opening of this picture-perfect, outdoor, holiday venue filled with larger-than-life holiday displays, waterfront roller-skating, local vendors, nightly music and top food and drink offerings. Whether you’re chilling at the North Pole Beach Club, partaking in the Gnauhty Gnome Scavenger Hunt, or taking a selfie with Santa, there’s something for everyone!

WHEN:
Saturday, November 30, 2019 | 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Santa arrives at 7:30 p.m. sharp!

Bayfront Holiday Village — A Bustling Wonderland Filled with Brilliant Lights, Shopping, Food and Entertainment Awaits in Downtown Miami

Bayfront Holiday Village Brings Daily Christmas Tree Lights Shows, Waterfront Roller-Skating, Local Vendors, Nightly Music and Top Food and Drink Offerings

Downtown Miami’s iconic Bayfront Park will transform into the magical Bayfront Holiday Village offering free, family-friendly programming all season long. Guests of all ages will enjoy daily 50 ft. Christmas tree LED light shows, waterfront roller-skating by Bayskate, over 50 local vendors, festive music and al fresco food and drinks.

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, locals and tourists alike will come for the weather, but stay for great shop-ping, entertainment and Miami’s version of a tropical winter wonderland.

“We know that New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles have pop-up holiday villages. We wanted to create a village where people would gather their loved ones and join in on some holiday cheer. Of course, we have something that the rest of the nation envies – our weather,” said Tony Albelo, event creator and CEO at SWARM.

Organizers want people to envision a quaint, picture-perfect, holiday outdoor venue filled with twinkling lights against Miami’s downtown skyline and waterfront Biscayne Bay. The picture-perfect, outdoor, holiday venue will be filled with twinkling lights and larger-than-life displays worthy of capturing the moment and posting it on Insta-gram.

“The only thing missing out of this Hallmark-perfect scene will be the frigid snow, but that’s why we invite our neighbors from the north to come here to enjoy Bayfront Holiday Village, Miami-style,” added Albelo.

Every night, a fully decorated, 50-foot state-of-the-art, animated Christmas Tree will feature hourly LED light shows sequenced to three different festive musical shows produced by Grammy-winning producer A.T. Molina.

New York has The Rink at Rockefeller Center, but Miami’s answer to cold-weather ice skating is Bay Skate, where adults and children can boogie to the beat of freestyle, tropical, contemporary pop and more. In the Northeast, peo-ple are ice skating and sipping hot cocoa wearing parkas. In Miami, we roller skate and sip mojitos in shorts. The Shops will offer a collection of 60 artisans in a jovial setting, each offering unique gift ideas to check off the “nice” list! Foodies will delight their senses at Bayfront Bites, where they’ll find seasonal beverages, sweet treats and food ga-lore!

The adventurous will participate in the Gnauhty Gnome Scavenger Hunt as they navigate Bayfront Park using guidebooks with clues to solve this year’s puzzle. Even fur babies will have a place of their own to hang out with free treats at the Santa Paws Dog Park, and every Sunday they’ll have Puppy Brunch!

LEAP Celebrates 10 Years of Second Chances for Incarcerated Women!

NPR’s James Judd to Emcee the fundraising and awareness-building event, with musical performances by Jazz Singers Leesa Richards and Brenda Alford.

LEAP (Ladies Empowerment and Action Program), the only reentry program in Miami-Dade County dedicated exclusively to women transitioning from prison, hosts the Second Chance Soiree on Sept. 26, 2019, from 6-10 p.m. at the Coral Gables Congregational Church. The festive event, which marks the 10th anniversary for LEAP, will draw attention to the serious plight of formerly incarcerated women reintegrating into society through songs and stories of compassion. Tickets are available now, and the event is open to the public.

During the event, sponsors and guests will also enjoy a cocktail reception, elegant hors d’ oeuvres, mixed media installation, and participate in a silent auction. All proceeds and donations from the Second Chance Soiree go towards LEAP’s in-prison education programming, post-release support services, and community engagement and advocacy efforts.

LEAP is distinctive, and its transformative services favorably impact communities. Women regain their footing through the organization’s entrepreneurship, employability, life skills, and trauma-informed substance abuse classes. Its secular programming allows for total diversity and inclusivity among all faiths. Since launching in 2009, LEAP has been successful in breaking the cycle of recidivism — less than five percent of LEAP graduates return to prison, in comparison with the national average in excess of 50 percent. Lowering recidivism rates translates into significant taxpayer savings, while creating safer and more stable neighborhoods.
