Celebrating 10 years!

Celebrating 10 years!

By: Muna Alsalhi   Spring is here and we are enthused to be enjoying the beautiful weather at Spring Fiesta in the Park April 2-3! As we come upon our 27th year we are honored and thrilled to be celebrating our 10 year anniversaries with Bright House Networks and Southern Ford Dealers as valued sponsors and partners for the event. As vendors and sponsors line the outskirts of Lake Eola Park we are expected to see over 150,000 attendees during the two-day event. This year we are looking forward to seeing the crowd reaction to our new upgrades to the Spring Fiesta such as the beer and burger garden, the Kids Carnival expansion, and the new Pet Fiesta area. Bring your best friend, your children, your pets, and an empty stomach because you’ll be sure to make each of them happy at the Spring Fiesta. Come on out and join us Saturday, April 3rd from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday, April 4th from 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. This event wouldn’t be possible without Bright House Networks and Southern Ford Dealers so we’d like to thank them for being repeated partners of this successful event and we look forward to seeing you all...

The 10th Annual City of Orlando’s Blues B-Q

The 10th Annual City of Orlando’s Blues B-Q

By: Mariah Lynn Roberts It’s a new year and we are looking forward to great events in 2016, more specifically, the 10th Annual Blues B-Q! Held on Saturday February 27th, the City of Orlando’s Blues B-Q takes place in Downtown Orlando, in front of City Hall and is one of Mayor Buddy Dyer’s signature events. The headlining act has been selected, and we are excited to announce it will be War, “The Original Afro-Cuban Jazz Rock Blues Band!” If you’ve never attended a Blues B-Q in the past or have no idea what Blues B-Q is, let me explain…Blues B-Q combines the blues with the best barbecue you can find in Central Florida, and it’s free to attend. Being a part of the production team is exciting because this event is so near and dear to the local community, to our mayor, and is one of four signature events hosted by the City of Orlando (yup, we get to work with some pretty great partners!). In the past 10 years we’ve had quite the lineup, including performances by Grammy Award Winners Buddy Guy (twice) and Johnny Lang, the legendary Betty Wright, Trombone Shorty, Robert Randolph and the queen of blues, KoKo Taylor. With over 8,000 in attendance each year, we pull out all the stops for great food, entertainment and atmosphere. In previous years, homegrown barbecue vendors have included Smokey Jay’s, Bubbalou’s, Blazin’ Bones, Caribbean Sunshine Bakery, 4Rivers, Porkies and several more. We offer a variety of barbecue, different styles and flavors to showcase what Central Florida has to offer. The event is called Blues B-Q for a darn...
