Festival

One thing I like about living in Orlando is that we are surrounded by so many cultures. You get to meet people of all types of ethnicity's. This past weekend the Arab American Community Center held an Arab festival down in Lake Eola. Lake Eola is beautiful, it is a popular destination in downtown Orlando. It has beautiful surroundings, an amphitheater, swan rides, restaurants and  a great place for a romantic walk.

Manny and I thought it would be neat to go to the Arab festival. We had so much fun and the weather was GORG!
I also learned that 840,000 Colombians are from Lebanese decent. Time to crack down on my Genealogy.

There were dozens of vendors, from food to traditional dress, jewelry, fabrics and art. This was the place to be. Oh and the music was awesome.

If you are ever in the Central Florida Area and want to chill like the locals, you must visit Lake Eola. On the weekends they have a Farmers Market and you can score many interesting things from local vendors and designers. Oh and I totally encourage you to go to these cultural events in your local community.
