Starting in Fort Lauderdale on December 11th at the Winterfest Boat Parade the barge quickly became the crowd favorite and won two awards – Best in Entertainment (Barge) and the Kaye Person Award for spirit of innovation. Following the show stopping kick-off, the team of riders made their way down the Intercoastal Waterway to Miami for the final stop along the American Airlines Arena on December 15th. The fifth day was a slam dunk for the Red Bull athletes who ended their tour of South Florida in front of basketball fans as they prepared to watch the home team take on Cleveland.
