We asked last week if you found our Mark Your Calendar posts to be helpful, and the majority wins! We will continue to post local events every week on Monday, in order to help you make date night (or day) plans. If you know of events coming up, please let us know and we’ll be sure to include them.
In order to make this post more user friendly, we’ve divided up the events into areas of Orlando rather than by date. We hope this helps everyone make use of the great activities available every week in Central Florida. BTW, Tuesday night’s forecast low is 63! This is a great week to get outdoors and enjoy being together!
