Downtown Fort Lauderdale Count Down to 2012

The City of Fort Lauderdale is hosting a block party called Count Down to 2012.  Saturday, December 31, 2011 there will be face painting, DJ with music, games, contests, a Kids Zone, line dancing and inflatables on New Years Eve!  This will be a family friendly event until 8:00.  There will be a special Ball Lighting at 7 pm for the kids and then the official Ball Drop at Midnight.

I must admit I would love it if they actually dropped the ball for the kids, but the kids seemed to enjoy counting down to the lighting all the same.

It makes a lovely evening walking along the Riverwalk and looking at the lights.  Around 8 last year it got pretty busy, so we were ready to head out by then.  

What a great chance for the little ones to cheer in the New Year without Mommy and Daddy paying for it with a tired kid the next day!

Happy New Year!!!
