April showers? Well, there is always a chance for a sprinkle or two, but in sunny Fort Lauderdale’s Riverwalk A&E District, we invite you to visit, #DotheDistrict and be showered with an abundance of exciting events, unique experiences and some meditative mastery, all of which have been curated especially for you. This month, you can “jazz” it up under a moonlit evening, bring your party hat and make up for lost time with a History Maker, rock out with legends, or let yourself be guided to a higher plane while exploring your inner creativity. These events are just for starters! With sun-swept days that extend long into evening and balmy nights, you will be hard-pressed to narrow your selection to just one or two tempting events. Our advice: Seize the moment and enjoy as many as possible.
