Las Olas Oceanside Park
Skydiving, Thundercat Boat, Drift Car and GT sports car demos will take over Las Olas Oceanside Park on Saturday, September 11 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. The Veterans Trust, in partnership with The Human Baton, is excited to announce their highly anticipated Tribute to America’s Heroes event coming to Fort Lauderdale Beach.
This FREE spectator event and community affair by event producers Stev Stephens, Phil Carrington, and Brett Williamson are best known as the team behind the obstacle course for the successful Ninja Warrior brand. Their newest project, The Human Baton, is a global high-energy relay race with multiple stages over land, sea, air, and online. Their goal is to capture the energy of the race into a one-day immersive experience with Fort Lauderdale as the backdrop.
Las Olas Oceanside Park will transform into a community affair with a family-friendly kid zone hosted by FLIPANY, a pop-up food village serving up the area’s most delectable eats, an opportunity to learn more about our military and first responders, video game trucks and simulators provided by local US Military organizations, an exclusive VIP village with refreshing cocktails, and a collection of the city’s tastemakers. There will be a stage program to respectfully pay homage to 9/11 while celebrating America and those that protect it. The day will culminate with an immersive Human Baton experience.
The mission behind The Human Baton experiences is to leave each city a better place than when they found it. All net proceeds will be distributed by The Veterans Trust to eight local nonprofits. Funds will support critical initiatives in the local community focused on employment, education, and various veteran programs.
