Weekend Best Bets - The Barn

The Barn, one of Central Florida’s gems, has its opening day this weekend. They’re back in town with lots of new goods.

Happy October!

This month we’ve got lots of fun autumn events happening! Pumpkin patches are planned, fall festivals are in the works and I have all the best spots to visit for embracing the spooky end of the month.

For this weekend, though, I’m sharing a Hawaiian themed event. It seems odd, right? Well, see for yourself why I included it below.

An event that’s happening for the 50th year in a row may just get you up early on a Saturday! The Barn, one of Central Florida’s gems, has its opening day this weekend. They’re back in town with lots of new goods that you’re going to want to check out before someone else snatches them up.

On Saturday night, Thomas Rhett comes to Orlando with quite the exciting list of guests. Throw on your boots and get ready for a night of country as he nails his debut performance at Amway Center.

The Board of Directors of The Humane Society of Polk County invite you to their very special night of partying for the animals! They’ve got a line-up of appetizers that pair nicely with the whiskey tasting and beer or wine for others. Tickets are available online.
