Presented by the Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Volunteer Fire Department, the celebration kicks off with the annual town parade at 10:00 AM.
The Grand Marshall is long time town resident Richard Clark, who was recently honored by the Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO)as its “Citizen of the Year for 2015.” A businessman and former CEO of the Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce, Clark has been a volunteer member with BSO’s Citizen Observer Patrol, and was instrumental in helping the Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Chamber of Commerce raise funds to buy a new Polaris beach patrol vehicle for the LBTS Emergency Response Team.
“This day-long event is where friends and family can celebrate our country’s birthday, and also celebrate Lauderdale-By-The-Sea,” said Clark. “The Town is an oasis for our family, filled with treasured milestones of my life. Like many others, I’ve watched it grow and thrive over the years. I am honored to be the Grand Marshall and look forward to welcoming residents and visitors to our very special seaside community.”
The parade will be followed by a day of festivities at El Prado Park. Family Fun Day will feature a waterslide and fire truck for the kids, as well as other fun activities. Holiday fare will include hot dogs, lemonade and other kid-friendly food.
The town’s annual fireworks display begins at 9:00 PM at the beach — just north of Commercial Boulevard and El Prado Park. Ride sharing or other public transportation is strongly encouraged.
