Kristin A. Pelletier, president of Blue Truck Productions in Fort Lauderdale, has been named to the Advisory Board for Winterfest, which produces the iconic Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade. In her advisory capacity, Pelletier will serve as a consultant in helping the organization build awareness through video marketing and social media strategies.
Pelletier has been associated with Winterfest as a volunteer since relocating to Fort Lauderdale in 2012. Over the years, Blue Truck Productions has donated creative and production services to the organization and their premier fundraiser, the Black Tie Ball – an impressive formal event held yearly in December. The theme for this year’s party is “Cabaret” and takes place Friday, Dec. 3, 2016.
“I’m excited to be a member of the Winterfest Advisory Board, especially as the organization celebrates its 45th anniversary,” said Pelletier. “The annual Winterfest citywide activities, parties and events culminate with the lavish holiday-themed boat parade that’s on level with Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Only in this parade, the floats are boats and yachts of all sizes and its procession is along the Intracoastal Waterway in Fort Lauderdale. It is a beautiful holiday tradition and one of the reasons I love this community. Attending the parade should be on everyone’s bucket list. It really is the greatest show on H20!”

Blue Truck Media, Inc. founded in 2013, specializes in the creative development of original screenplays, television programming and books and offers turnkey production services to corporations around the world.
