Events are aplenty in Central Florida, and there’s an array of activities to choose from for just about everyone’s taste. Orlandoans and visitors experience festivals, fundraisers, art exhibitions and sports year-round here in paradise. Denizens are out and about during the fall and springtime while northerners are bundled up during the winter months. Theme parks are also overflowing with tourists and citizens alike during the sizzling summer months.
Residents don’t have the opportunity of experiencing the changing of the seasons or brown, gold and red-colored leaves falling from the trees in their own backyards like in other parts of the nation, but hey make do with brewed apple cider and pumpkin and scarecrow decorations, which are another indication that fall is here.
