Parkland brainstorming for 50th bash

The city is turning 50 next summer, and staff has been instructed by the City Commission to start coming up with celebration ideas.

Among Mayor Michael Udine’s suggestions: a parade in conjunction with a high school homecoming parade, a carnival, and a concert. He said he’d like to see city groups involved in the planning, such as historical society experts and women’s groups.

“Let’s do a whole series [of events],” he said.

Parkland isn’t the only city gearing up to celebrate a milestone. In July 2013, Coral Springs turns 50 years old as well. That city has appointed a volunteer committee to come up with event suggestions.
