Sistrunk Festival 2011

Once again It's on .. I'm about to say what I say every year on this site ... my favorite time of the year ... FESTIVALS ..

One of Broward County’s oldest and most anticipated events returns every February as the annual Parade. With hundreds of participants and thousands of spectators in attendance, the parade begins promptly at 9:00 a.m. from New Mount Olive Baptist Church and travels down historic Sistrunk Boulevard and ends with a big Street Festival. This is a free event – everyone loves the Sistrunk Parade!
For 30 years, more than 300,000 people have attended this event. The Festival offers plenty of food, arts & crafts, merchandise and information vendors, a health fair, and live local and national entertainment. The Street Festival begins at 11:00 a.m. in the streets of Sistrunk Boulevard. Entertainment will include Javon Black, Urban Mystic, and the headline entertainer will be Doug E. Fresh - rapper, record-producer, and world renown human beat boxer. Don't miss this great show!
The Festival showcases African-American and Caribbean-American lifestyles and entertainment while providing a means for the community to gather for fun-in-the-sun with quality entertainment and wholesome, family-centric activities.
