This Weekend In Orlando February 28 to March 1
A brief overview of this weekend's events in and around Orlando.
It’s cooling down and it looks like rain for the weekend. A little rain’s never stopped us before though. Here in Orlando, we know how to have a good time rain or shine. So if you’re already planning your weekend, here are just a few highlights of the happenings in and around town:
February 27 – 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm – Sanford Art Walk
Looking for something out of the movie-and-dinner date night box? Then take a drive out to downtown Sanford and walk through the galleries and art spaces down on First Street between Magnolia and Sanford avenues. Take in the culture, nightlife, food, and art this river town has to offer and possibly find some treasures to take home with you. For more info: sanfordartwalk.com
