From a blood drive, to a South Florida hot spot re-opening after Hurricane Irma, there’s a lot happening in South Florida this week. Here’s a preview of The Week Ahead:
Miami Beach Hosts Blood Drive: Miami Beach is hosting a blood drive to help the victims of both the Las Vegas shooting and Hurricane Maria. The recent tragic events have had a huge impact on the national blood supply. The “Big Red Bus” will be in front of Miami Beach City Hall on Monday between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m.
College Week on NBC 6: Monday kicks off NBC 6 College Week! First up is Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale. NBC 6 will head to NSU to get a closer look at what makes this South Florida college so special for students.
Miami Gardens Hosts State of the City Address: On Tuesday night, Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert will give the annual state of the city address. The 14th annual address will take place at the City Hall courtyard at 7 p.m.
Beautification Project for Little Havana: On Tuesday, Mayor Tomas Regalado is expected to announce a beautification project for the area of 13th Avenue between Southwest 8th Street and Coral Way in Little Havana. That project will honor our armed forces.
Broward College Hosts Sea Level & Climate Change Event: On Thursday, Broward College will host a sea level rise and climate change event. It will run like a “fireside chat” with lots of interaction from the hosts and audience members.
Miami Seaquarium to Re-Open: On Friday, the Miami Seaquarium will re-open. The amusement center and museum has been closed since Hurricane Irma hit South Florida. Park officials have spent the past month cleaning up and restoring the park.
And with Columbus Day happening on Monday, many will enjoy the sun and sand of our beautiful beaches. The NBC 6 News and Weather App is the best place to get your First Alert Forecast, to plan for an extra-large umbrella or some extra sunscreen. You can download it by clicking here.
