Thousands of holiday lights will be lit in Fort Lauderdale Tuesday in the “Light Up the Beach” ceremony.
During the free event, 50,000 lights will illuminate a sailboat display located at A1A and Las Olas Boulevard.
After the lighting ceremony, the Florida 9th District American Legion Symphonic Band will perform a free outdoor holiday concert.
Fort Lauderdale elected officials, including the mayor, are expected to attend the event that begins at 6:30 p.m.
The public art display, which will remain throughout the holidays, will be illuminated with LED lights and digitally choreographed to holiday music.
During the 7 p.m. concert in D.C. Alexander Park, there will also be a kid’s zone with bounce houses, slides and pony rides.
