Celebrate Spring’s Iconic Happenings

Posted on: February 28th, 2022

The season of renewal and reawakening is finally here. And while we still have no idea what resurgence might be lurking – I won’t even say the name – we can celebrate what’s coming up on the calendar. We are excited to partake in some of Central Florida’s finest traditions.

Arnold Palmer Invitational – March 1-6

Some of us still call it the Bay Hill Invitational, but the Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by Mastercard is widely recognized as much for its star roster of players as it is for the endearing and enduring legacy of the great Arnold Palmer. https://arnoldpalmerinvitational.org/

EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival – March 2 – July 4

The horticulture team at Walt Disney World Resort produces elaborate topiaries, hanging baskets, flower towers and more for the annual festival that also features lively entertainment, fresh cuisine and interactive vignettes. https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/events-tours/epcot/epcot-international-flower-and-garden-festival/

63rd Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival – March 18-20
