The Winterfest White Party is an invitation only event but for the first time the general public was able to purchase a minimum number of tickets.
Sixth Star Entertainment transformed the pool terrace into a silver screen with bright lights, glimmer and glitz of this magical evening with the lighting and sound magic from PSAV Presentation Services. Guests were greeted by Ivan Borak and Leelan Taylor digital pianos and dancers depicting the parade’s theme “Rockin the Night Aweigh” wearing various costumes depicting decades of rock music.
Escorted by Miss Florida USA Anastagia Pierre and Miss Latina International—Esther Dollar along with Miss Latina International Canada – Diana Schoutsen, the Winterfest Mascot made his inaugural debut on stage. President/CEO of Winterfest, Inc., Lisa Scott-Founds introduced the parade’s mascot and encouraged everyone to visit the website to enter a name for the parade’s mascot.
Along with the entertainment and mingling with local celebrities, guests enjoyed an array of beverages from Southern Wine & Spirits featuring Clos du Bois wines, Ultimat Vodka and Pryat Rum. The gourmet delights of Timpano’s Italian Chophouse / Samba Room captivated the senses throughout the area. The Hilton tantalizes the taste of everyone’s palate with holiday desserts.
