Cheers for 60 Years! Coral Springs To Mark Its 60th Anniversary Events & Celebrations

Growing from a master-planned “city in the country” to a thriving suburban hub, Coral Springs was first incorporated in 1963 as “the last piece of gold on the gold coast” and has since become home to more than 134,000 residents. Known for celebrating milestone years with a big bash or an attention-grabbing spectacle, city staff intend to keep with tradition by implementing larger-than-life plans for marking the 60th year 

“The city with everything under the sun has always gone above-and-beyond for our residents by celebrating milestone years in grand fashion,” said Coral Springs Mayor Scott Brook. “The 60th Anniversary will keep that tradition with large-scale events, family-centered activities, and, of course, delicious food and fun!”  

A team of Anniversary Ambassadors will be on-hand throughout the year to enhance the celebration through community outreach. This group of volunteers, from teens to retirees, will serve at events, share the city’s past with visitors to the Museum of Coral Springs History, and encourage their neighbors to get involved in the festivities. 

Coral Springs has established a long-standing tradition of celebrating its milestone years with signature events and activities. For its 25th Anniversary in 1988, the city set a Guinness World Record by cooking the World’s Largest Hamburger. At the 40th Anniversary, a giant iced tea was prepared. For its 50th Anniversary, Coral Springs hosted a Campapalooza with the city’s largest Zumba class.
