Hollywood’s 61st Annual Candy Cane Parade to Light Up the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, Saturday, December 3, 7 p.m.
Hollywood - Now in its 61st year, the Candy Cane Parade returns to the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk this Saturday, December 3 at 7 p.m. to delight thousands of spectators of all ages and usher in the holiday season in Hollywood! The Candy Cane Parade on Hollywood Beach is one of the longest running holiday parades in the country. It was started back in the
mid-1950’s by a group of Hollywood merchants as a way to draw patrons to their shops and businesses. Today it features imaginative lighted floats and vehicles, marching bands and dance troupes with parade participants tossing out candy canes and mints all along the parade route. This year’s parade theme is “Musical Notes and Peppermint Floats.”
The parade gets underway rain or shine at 7:00 p.m. on the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk at Scott Street and heads south to Harrison Street. Complimentary bleacher seating is available along the parade route from Garfield Street to Polk Street. Parade emcees will be stationed at Charnow Park at Garfield Street and at the Hollywood Beach Theatre at Johnson
Street. To ease traffic, parade-goers are encouraged to park in one of the parking downtown garages and take the free parade shuttles to and from the beach from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. The downtown parking garages are located at 19th Avenue at Polk Street and 20th Avenue at Van Buren Street. Standard parking rates apply. The Candy Cane
Parade is presented in partnership with the Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency.

Local Hollywood Teams Support the Humane Society of Broward County Walk for the Animals Fort Lauderdale – The Humane Society of Broward County’s largest fundraiser is the Walk for the Animals which will be held on March 18, 2017 at Huizenga Plaza in downtown Fort Lauderdale. The event netted over $525,000 in 2016 and the center hopes to raise even more in 2017. People are encouraged to set up fundraising pages and collect donations from friends and family. Others like to form “Packs” or teams and they get very creative in raising funds. One such team is the Puppy Peddlers, which are a group of volunteers who work in the shelter’s Pet Boutique and their friends. The team captain is Hollywood resident Cherie Wachter, VP of Marketing at the shelter and who oversees the volunteer sales associates.
Last year this dedicated group raised over $36,282.00 for the shelter and took home a trophy for third place Pack fundraiser. For the 2017 Walk, the team is selling chances for the opportunity to win an estate stamped silkscreen print by the Louisiana artist George Rodrigue. The print entitled “Three Amigos” features the infamous Blue Dog with another cat and dog and measures
22” x 28”. Chances are $10.00 each; 6 for $50.00; 13 for $100.00 and can be purchased by visiting the Humane Society of Broward County’s Pet Boutique located at 2070 Griffin Road; Hair Industry at 2000 Harrison Street; the Pet Doctor of Davie located at 5183 S. University Drive; Yachtronics 626 SW 4th Ave. in Fort Lauderdale, or call Cherie at 954-266-6831. Another team with a
Hollywood connection is the Beachside Montessori Village - BMV Lions. Beachside Montessori Village students have participated in the walk for several years and their goal is to raise $5,000 in 2017. Pack leader Manon Boulanger Wiese and her son Roscoe, a 6th grader at BMV, have some great things planned for the students to get involved. Fundraisers include a Polar Express movie night
at the school, paper bone sales, and a family fun night at the Melting Pot in Cooper City. For more information about the Walk, please visit www.walk4thanimals.com . You can set up your own fundraising page, form your own team or support one of these Hollywood residents and their efforts. The Humane Society of Broward County is a private, non-profit organization sup-
ported by donations from companies and people who want to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals. The shelter has only one location at 2070 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale and is not affiliated with any national or local organization with a similar name. To see animals up for adoption or find out about other upcoming events visit our website at www.humanebroward.com.
