The month of March arrives with thoughts of “spring things” and so begins the many annual area festivals.  There is much to eat, tons of entertainment, and enjoyment for all ages, with a variety of choices.

EPCOT kicked off its Flower and Garden Festival on March 2nd and will run for longer this year, until May 30th.  There will be new topiaries and flowers galore throughout the park, visiting celebrity chefs and gardeners, new culinary treats, and Outdoor Kitchens all around EPCOT.  Weekend concerts will include some new performances by Darlene Love, Georgia Satellites and Blood,
Sweat & Tears,
as well as the return of favorites,  Starship,  Village People, The Guess Who, and Herman’s Hermits, among many others.  It is always an exciting time of year!

The annual Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City runs from March 3rd to the 13th.  This 10-day event is a venue for crafts, free entertainment, a large midway, plus big-name musical concerts, just a few being Charley Pride, Donny & Marie Osmond, and Kris Kristofferson.  It is widely known for its famous strawberry shortcake and much more with delicious home-grown strawberries.

Busch Gardens of Tampa is holding its Food & Wine Festival from March 5th thru April 24th, with many flavors of wine, a variety of beers, live music and weekend concerts with big-name performances, such as Huey Lewis & The News, Commodores and Andy Grammer.  Not only can one enjoy the attractions and various animals, but the festival adds “flavor” to all the entertainment.

Sea World Orlando Bands, Brew & BBQ has been full of country music and great food since February. It is a tribute to the men and women who serve America and protect its citizens and is sponsored in part by USO of Central Florida.  It runs from early February to March 6th and offers many big-name country entertainers, such as American Idol winner, Scotty McCreary, Gladys Knight, and Alabama as part of this year’s lineup.  Be sure to look for it next February as this is an annual event!

It is also worth mentioning that from April 5th to the 10th, the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport will present the FUN N SUN Air Show, the International Fly-in & Expo, which is considered to be the largest air show in the south!  If one loves planes, thrills and excitement, this will be the place!  Be sure to check it out.

There is never a dull moment in Central Florida, especially in the spring.  Get out and enjoy the beautiful weather, the smell of orange blossoms, and all of the festivals at our fingertips!!
