On Wednesday, August 15, 2007 The Riverwalk Trust's Board welcomed their members and the Board Members from Winterfest Boat Parade aboard The Grand Floridian, to give them the opportunity to get a "boats eye" view of the new parade route for the 2007 Winterfest Boat Parade, on December 15, 2007.
Renee Quinn, with BNY Mellon Wealth Management Bank and Past Chairman of the Riverwalk Trust Board was instrumental in putting this awesome event together, in a very short time to take advantage of the press conference held at the Riverside Hotel announcing the new parade route just two week prior. The two Boards have formed a new partnership promoting the new Wnterfest Boat Parade Route starting at the Broward Performing Arts Center and continuing on the The River out to the Intercoastal waterway.
The route was terrific, the weather could not have been any nicer and the atmosphere was electric as people had the opportunity to view the parade route and all the opportunities it provides for spectators and participants in the 2007 Winterfest Boat Parade.
