Weekend Event  in Fort Lauderdale
Weekend Event- Fleet Week Port Everglades 2015

Let us see what will tickle our fancy for this coming weekend event in Fort Lauderdale…

Without becoming too redundant, we are SO lucky to live in and around Fort Lauderdale. Forget the sun, delightful weather, restaurants, culture and on and on. We should all wear the badge of pride as we are host to the Human Fleet Week Port Everglades.

Before I dive further into this event, I pose a several questions to my readers.

How many years have we, in Broward County, been host to this event?

  • The answer is  25 glorious years.

How long has the Coast Guard serviced our shores?

  • The answer, a shocking 225 years. The Naval Reserves celebrate their centennial in this year. WOW.

This weekend event in Fort Lauderdale is a celebration of our military and her history. The show “kicked off”  on Monday, May 4. However late participants can still enjoy the festivities.

Here is a run down for both young and younger (at heart).

Saturday, May 9 from the hours of 1-3 pm Dania Beach will host an Extreme Ping Pong Tournament. This event is in conjunction with the Local Boys and Girls Club and the Broward Table Tennis Club located at 11 SW 12 Avenue in Dania Beach.

Saturday, May 9 from 6-10 pm Foodies should head on over to the Gallery Ward Culinary Competition taking place at Hugh’s Culinary in Oakland Park.This event proves very interesting as it pits various military culinary specialist, from the various ships, against each other. Think   Food Wars amongst our military. A select few will be able to savor these gourmet delights. Hugh’s Culinary is located at 4351 NE 12th Terrace in Oakland Park.

In addition, there will be tours of the Navy and Coast Guard ships. But alas, for security reasons, you will have needed to register before hand. For the 2016 weekend event in Fort Lauderdale gala here years.
