Here’s what’s happening in Central Florida this weekend! On Friday, you will find us volunteering at Saint Cloud’s monthly Hipstoric celebration in downtown Saint Cloud. This month it’s Viva Florida 500 – and we’ll be celebrating Florida’s 500th birthday!

The City of St. Cloud is providing a birthday cake, which will be served by Mayor Rebecca Borders.  There will be a re‐enactment at the lakefront of Ponce de León’s landing in Florida, along with a cannon salute, museums open for tours, best-dressed Indian contest for kids, carriage rides, period music and more.

We will also be taking in the antique cars, food trucks and music including the St. Cloud Orchestra and an acoustic band which will perform on the stage on New York Avenue. The Fountain of Youth will be in front of A Finishing Touch where you can be picked up or dropped off by carriage for FREE, courtesy A Finishing Touch.

Oh, and we’ll also be celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day too, but not sure where yet, there’s so much to chose from!
