So why not throw a festival in its honor? Join us on September 22, 2018 from noon till 4:00 pm at Esplanade Park in downtown Fort Lauderdale for the 4th Annual Riverwalk Fall Festival and fall in love with fall all over again.  Feel free to bring along your lawn chairs or blankets, kids and well behaved pets on leashes for an afternoon of fun.
