Wilton Manors City Commissioner Mike Bracchi recently attended the city Holiday Lighting Ceremony at Justin Flippen Park in Wilton Manors. The ceremony featured music by local performers and the local chorus, a number of festivities, and the lighting of the Menorah, Kinara, and Christmas Tree.
Commissioner Bracchi stated, “This all-embracing ceremony is indicative of the inclusiveness of our beautiful Island City.” The ceremony took place at the park named after the late mayor. “Justin loved our city and he would dress up as Santa every year. This park is the perfect place to continue the annual lighting ceremonies,” Bracchi said.
This year’s event was attended by hundreds of local residents. Because the event was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, residents and friends were excited to be back outside celebrating holiday cheer. “It is important to provide residents with outdoor festivities, in a socially distant and safe manner. People are eager to get out and enjoy the holidays this year” Bracchi stated.
