I love living near the downtown and Winterpark areas, there are so many interesting, cultural activities to be involved in. Following the UCF homecoming football game versus Marshall I want to check out two events in my neighborhood this Saturday, November 3rd. The problem is both are at the same time and both involve Jazz! Choices, choices.
The College Park neighborhood is having its annual Jazz festival. The concert begins at 6pm and seating is available on a first come, first serve basis and the cost is free. “Just pack a picnic basket with your favorite food and beverages, grab a blanket or lawn chair and sit back to enjoy a warm fall evening under the stars, filled with beautiful jazz music and good friends!” Sounds like a good time to me. Interestingly, Alcoholic beverages are permitted for those 21 and older. I love being able to have a drink outdoors.
Additionally, Leu Gardens is hosting its Fall Jazz Stroll, consisting of live music and candlelit walks through the gardens. “Enjoy an evening of jazz & blues music performed by Beautiful Bobby Blackmon, The Robert Harris Group and Lindy & Sol Y Mar with candlelit walkways in Orlando’s most beautiful garden. Pack a dinner picnic basket and bring a blanket or chairs.” I enjoyed my first visit to the gardens recently and can think of no better date night. Tickets are $17 and went on sale October 22nd, the gardens will close at 3pm and reopen at 7 for the stroll.
I may just have to figure out a way to do both!
