If you couldn’t tell by now, I’m a huge fan of food. To be more specific, I’m a huge fan of local, seasonal, creative food.
This month the best farmer’s market nearby, in my opinion, is back in action! Nix your weekend grocery run and head to Downtown Lakeland to stock up on some organic produce, easy-to-maintain succulents, local honey, handmade goods and more.
On Saturday, you’re invited to participate in a golf tournament that benefits an incredible organization. Folds of Honor raises money to change the lives of spouses and children of fallen and disabled service members. They do this by providing them with educational scholarships. A percentage of the money raised goes directly to the cause.
The always popular JJ Grey & Mofro tour is returning to Winter Haven with Roosevelt Collier. Jam out with some delicious food and drinks. Seats in the concert area are limited, so be sure to buy your tickets ahead of time and arrive a bit early.
End the weekend with a family outing in Orlando. Let the kids dress up in their favorite Disney costumes for “Disney On Ice Presents Road Trip Adventures.” You’re sure to see Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Aladdin, Woody, Simba and more!
