The first ever Beach Bear Weekend will hit Fort Lauderdale Beach on May 10-14. Bears from all over the world will be all over our town experiencing everything our amazing area has to offer.

The event will benefit local charities, including Sunserve, a local charity whose mission is to provide critical life assistance and professional mental health services with an emphasis on the economically disadvantaged, marginalized youths, and senior adults in Greater Fort Lauderdale.
