Join the winged-float celebration “FlockFest,” taking place on Sebastian Beach in Fort Lauderdale. All are welcome and are encouraged to bring their winged floats – swans, flamingos, ducks, etc. – and decorate them with creative flair. Last year’s winged-float celebration included more than 500 floats and more than 1,800 attendees.
The event started out in 2015 as a small gathering of friends looking to do something fun and different. As the event grew each year, FlockFest founder Steven Crawford thought it could be a great way to raise money for charities. Today, that is the main purpose. Tickets can be purchased for access to the VIP area which includes beverages and FlockFest merchandise. Proceeds from ticket sales and merchandise benefit the following Greater Fort Lauderdale-based organizations: Renand Foundation, Julian’s Fountain of Youth and United Dog Rescue.
