Description

One last Destination Fridays’ event before the summer vacation! And it’s a big one with oceans of fun . . .

Welcome to Destination Caribbean-American Heritage Celebration on Friday, June 2, 2017 at the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARLCC), 2650 Sistrunk Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. This age 21 and over event is scheduled from 6:30 to 9:30PM and costs a mere $10 (payable at the door or through Eventbrite).

There will be food to savor from local Caribbean restaurants or caterers, and the signature drink will be a tropical rum cocktail with a variety of flavorings! There will be shimmery steel drum music played in the lobby – you’ll feel like you’re on a cruise ship or at an island beach resort! There will be joyful dancing, an engaging travel talk, and gift basket raffles.

The highlight of the evening will be a show called “The Caribbean’s Got Talent” featuring local Caribbean-American artists willing to challenge each other for the top prize of the evening! As we said, oceans of fun for you to enjoy!

Come dressed to compete in your country’s colors and show us your pride! The Caribbean nation with the greatest participation will become a featured destination stop in the year 2018!

Sponsors for Destination Caribbean-American Heritage include the Friends of AARLCC, ReadingPaysMore, Auntie Sue’s Roti to Go, Country Walk, Lauderhill Steel Ensemble and Cruise Planners/American Express Travel.

Save the Date for the South Florida Book Festival on the evenings of July 20, 21, and all day on Saturday, July 22, 2017. More information to come!
