Best Cultural Event Weston World Fest Weston World Fest has once again been recognized as the Best Cultural Event in town. That’s not surprising when you consider it celebrates our community’s cultural diversity. This year’s program featured more than 20 country booths representing the homelands of Weston residents. Patrons could “travel the globe” experiencing the culture and heritage of various countries from Cuba and Costa Rica to Singapore and Indonesia. Each booth offered cultural displays and hands-on activities. The Passport Challenge added to the educational aspect of the event. Weston World Fest also exposed guests to the tastes and sounds of different countries. Entertainment included everything from Chinese instrumentalists to Brazilian vocalists and an American jazz band. Local restaurants served up samples of authentic international cuisine. “Stage & Screen” was the theme of the 2019 Weston World Fest. It highlighted international movies, music, and theater. The event is presented by the Arts Council of Greater Weston and the City of Weston.

Best Family Event Weston 4th of July Hometown Parade Patriotic pride fills the air as thousands of parade-goers line the streets around Weston Town Center to watch the City of Weston’s annual 4th of July Hometown Parade. Decked out in red, white and blue, friends and families arrive early to stake out prime spots along Main Street to get a glimpse of the 50 or so floats and parade entries. Dozens of community organizations proudly display their patriotism in the parade. In addition to members of the Weston City Commission and local dignitaries, the 4th of July Hometown Parade features members of the Arts Council of Greater Weston, Weston Music Society, Rotary Club of Weston, scout troops, sports teams, local churches, area businesses, beauty queens, costumed characters, and much more.

theme was United by Freedom. CBS4 Meteorologist and Weston resident Craig Setzer served as Grand Marshal.

Best Free Event Outdoor Pops Concert

Weston Town Center transformed into an openair concert hall for the Symphony of the Americas’ free, outdoor pops concert, presented by the Weston Music Society and City of Weston. It is one of the most highly-anticipated cultural events of the year, attracting a crowd of all ages. The outdoor pops concert provides a unique opportunity to introduce the community to the beauty of classical musical performed by a worldclass symphony orchestra. The outdoor venue is particularly appealing to families with young children who may not be ready for a traditional concert experience. This year’s music under the stars program featured familiar scores from popular blockbuster movies such as Mission Impossible, Pirates of the Caribbean, Jurassic Park, and Indiana Jones, as well as highlights from the beloved musical movie, The Sound of Music. The ever-popular pops classic, Stars and Stripes Forever, closed out the concert. All music was performed by the Symphony of the Americas Orchestra, under the baton of Maestro James Brooks-Bruzzese.

Best Park Weston Regional Park From small passive parks to expansive athletic complexes, Weston has a park experience to please every resident. The largest and most popular, at least according to Our City Weston readers, is Weston Regional Park. The 102-acre park is home to the Weston Community Center as well as the Weston YMCA Family Center. It is Weston’s most active park with eight baseball/softball fields, eight football/soccer fields, eight basketball courts, three roller hockey rinks, four multi-purpose artificial turf courts, and four sand volleyball courts. In addition, there is an exercise trail that weaves throughout the park stretching 8,000 linear feet. Weston Regional Park also features two shaded playgrounds. Other park amenities include three picnic shelters with tables and grills that can be rented by residents, five concession stands with restroom facilities, and an Event Stage, where the community gathers for free events such as Weston World Fest, Moonlight Movies in the Park and the WestonNights Outdoor Concert Series. Weston Regional Park also plays host to the annual Royal Egg Hunt.

Bellissimo Medical. As you age, the body produces lower levels of hormones vital to health and well-being. By restoring hormones to the levels they were during your younger days, you can begin to feel and look your absolute best. Hormone replacement therapy has been in use for over 90 years. It is safe and effective for both men and women. Bellissimo Medical Director Dr. JeanClaude Nerette specializes in hormone therapy with a focus on maintaining a healthy hormonal balance to help the prevention of aging and disease. As individuals age hormones decline which may lead to anxiety, depression, weight gain, changes in mood, decline in libido, hypertension as well as menopause or andropause. During his extensive blood work and history evaluation, Dr. Nerette prescribes a detailed treatment plan to prevent symptoms, making patients feel younger and rediscover themselves. Dr. Nerette not only specializes in natural hormones called Bio Identical hormones, but he is also among a handful of physicians that prescribes custom pellets for hormonal balance. In addition, he prescribes nutraceuticals, supplements, and other natural hormones.

Best Weight Loss Program Slender Fit U 12515 Orange Drive, Suite 815, Davie 954-423-1376 www.SlenderFitU.com

With Slender Fit U you can get slim and skip the gym. Slender Fit U’s medically monitored hCG weight loss program turns your body into a fat burning machine. Over the past ten years it has helped hundreds of patients lose weight and keep it off. Patients will lose pounds and inches by taking a tiny dose of hCG and following a very specific lowcalorie diet, eating real food including proteins, fruits and vegetables. Most Slender Fit U dieters report losing between one-half and two pounds per day without exercising. Generally, men lose more weight than women while on the program and women tend to lose more inches than men. Slender Fit U does more than just help patients lose weight – it actually reshapes the body. Because you are losing excess fat, not muscle mass or tone, you do not end up with saggy skin after completing the Slender Fit U program. Upon completion, you will also have reset your metabolism and corrected the hypothalamus resulting in permanent weight loss. Slender Fit U will help you modify your relationship with food and eating, resulting in easily maintained, long-term weight loss. In fact, 90%

of patients do not gain back any of the weight they lost.

As Tree of Life gears up for their fall classes, they are also putting plans together for their one-year anniversary. In addition to their own celebration, the school will be coordinating charitable events for the non-profit Women in Distress in November, and Toys for Tots in December. Teaching their students to give back to the community is just one way that Buitrago measures the impact the school has made. “What makes us know that we are living up to our mission is when children come in for a tour, they often cry at the end. But they’re not crying because they’re worried that their parents are going to leave them here; the kids are crying because they love it here and don’t want to go!”

The restaurant’s menu features fare native to Sardinia as well as traditional Italian dishes. Its extensive wine list includes a large selection of Sardinian wines. The new Zona Blu Bar features a selection of signature cocktails, with many made with Mirto, a liqueur unique to Sardinia. To complement these specialty drinks, Zona Blu serves a delicious collection of aperitivi (small, hand-held appetizers) meant

to prepare the palate for an extraordinary meal. Zona Blu’s menu consists of traditional Sardinian cuisine such as fregola (a pasta that resembles Israeli couscous) and gnocchetti (small, hand-rolled pasta not to be confused with gnocchi), paired with traditional Italian favorites. The specialties of the house include two distinct pasta dishes, Spaghetti alla Ruota and Spaghetti al Cartoccio. Spaghetti alla Ruota features a giant wheel of hollowed-out Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, aged 36 months and imported from Italy. The server prepares the featured pasta of the day tableside inside the cheese wheel, tossing it until the pasta is blended with the cheese.

Alpha Street is not incentivized to choose investments that may provide an additional commission through the fund selected. Clients can also take comfort in knowing that as an RIA, Alpha Street has an obligatory fiduciary duty to act in its clients’ best interest and is regulated by the State of Florida and the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC). The company name is significant. Alpha is the measure of performance on a rick adjusted basis. Alpha Street’s goal is to bring “Alpha” back to Main Street.
