Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale invites couples looking for a unique Valentine’s Day experience to attend the second annual LOVE in the Park Presented by Publix Aprons Event Planning Catering. Skip the busy restaurant lines and enjoy a romantic, all-inclusive evening under the stars with your loved one in Huizenga Plaza (32 East Las Olas Blvd, 33301). Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and the event runs until 10 p.m.
Begin the evening with a wine sampling featured by Tuscany Wines. Each couple will also receive a bottle of wine to pair with a selection of culinary creations prepared by Publix Aprons’ top chefs. Enjoy the gorgeous outdoor setting of Huizenga Plaza, silhouetted by the famed New River, as you sway to the sultry sounds of singer/songwriter Cat Shell.
Attendees may choose to purchase general admission tickets and bring blankets or chairs to dine picnic-style on the lawn; VIP tickets may also be purchased and will allow guests to access the VIP Lounge area which will feature tables, chairs, and a special take-home gift to commemorate the occasion.
Ticket packages admit two (2). General admission tickets are $80; VIP tickets are $125. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale.
