The City of Margate Celebrates its 60th Anniversary
On May 30, 1955, Margate was created as a municipal corporation known as the Town of Margate and became the 15th municipality in Broward County. Then, in 1961, the Town of Margate was incorporated as a City.
To commemorate the City's 60th anniversary, the Mayor and City Commission participated in a ceremonial cake cutting on May 20th. Then, on May 30th, the City hosted its Celebrate 60 event at the Margate Sports Complex.
