Come Ye All, Canadians! Come Ye All to Sunny Palm Beach County, Florida

Jennifer Sorentrue at the Post has more good news about Palm Beach County tourism and travel. Our good friends from Canada taking a cruise from Port Everglades will spend the day and night and the next morning in PBC before heading south to Ft. Lauderdale. Here is an excerpt:
     Hundreds of Canadian cruise passengers will spend a night in Palm Beach County before setting sail from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale as a result of a new partnership between Canadian North and Celebrity Cruises.
     The weekly Canadian North charter flights from Moncton, New Brunswick, and Halifax, Nova Scotia, to Palm Beach International Airport are expected to begin in January and continue through April, bringing roughly 1,300 visitors to Palm Beach County during the 11-week period. The partnership is set to result in roughly 700 nightly hotel rooms booked in Palm Beach County, said Sophie Gaeta, who oversees airlift development PBIA.
Jorge Pesquera, the president/CEO of Discover The Palm Beaches, is also quoted in the article. Here is a video called The Palm Beaches in 60 seconds and if you pay attention the City of Lake Worth gets one!
