Complete with live animals, musical numbers, and performances, it presents the perfect opportunity to get into the Christmas spirit. According to their website, “The Emmy award-winning Fort Lauderdale Christmas Pageant is a South Florida Christmas tradition for the past 35 years! This Broadway-style stage celebration features a cast of over 300 performers who push themselves further each year to put on a show that’s more dynamic, more challenging, and more amazing than the last.”
