Modern Mom’s very own Brooke Burke has been named a Grand Marshal of the 2010 Winterfest Boat Parade. The Boat Parade, celebrating its 39th year, will take place Saturday, December 11. It has earned the title "The World’s Most Watched Boat Parade" and it is listed in Reader’s Digest as one of America’s 100 Best Events. The Boat Parade is a treasured South Florida holiday tradition.
As a Grand Marshal of the Boat Parade, Brooke will join other celebrities such as Shaquille O’Neal, Regis Philbin, Jim Belushi, George Hamilton, Willard Scott, Lee Majors, Joan Rivers, Kim Kardashian, Alonzo Mourning, Reba McIntyre, Randy Jackson, Nick Nolte, Dan Marino, Donald Trump, Kelly Ripa and Bob Hope just to name a few.
The parade will also be a TV special which is available to millions, so check out your local listing. An estimated 1 million spectators line the 12 mile parade route along the New River and Intracoastal waterways, cheering as they watch about 100 breathtaking boats and floats swim by.
Brooke is ecstatic for the opportunity to Grand Marshal this spectacular event and we’re happy for her!
