Spring Fiesta in the Park

The weekend before last thousands of people headed to Lake Eola in Downtown Orlando to enjoy the 28th Annual Spring Fiesta in the Park, a two-day family-friendly event held on Saturday, April 1st and Sunday, April 2nd. This free community event was a welcome opportunity for more than 200 artists and crafters who came from all over the country to display and sell their original work. Vendors were lined in tented booths along the streets and around the park. Some of the work featured at Fiesta included beautiful handmade jewelry, paintings, crafts, glass art home décor and much more.

Patrons enjoyed live music along with a wide variety of food stalls and lots of family and kid-friendly activities while strolling through the park. A huge kid’s play area with bounce houses, games, train rides around the lake and face painting were some of the fun-filled activities that made for a perfect outdoor weekend for the family. Spring Fiesta in the Park also had a special place for your four-legged friends to enjoy and relax. Several pet adoption booths were present at the event’s Pet Fiesta area, with additional rescue groups placed at several locations all around the park.

A big thank you to our 11-time presenting sponsor Southern Ford Dealers, the City of Orlando, Central Florida Expressway Authority and Tobacco Free Florida for sponsoring this year’s Spring Fiesta in the Park! Be on the lookout for a fully revamped Fiesta in the Park web site with more information for the general public and a new and simple artist, crafter and food vendor registration process coming soon to www.fiestainthepark.com.
