A Taste of the Cape
Okay, so maybe my last post about the Burrowing Owl Festival didn’t appeal to you…how about a different kind of activity for this weekend?
On Sunday, March 1 Cape Coral will host the Annual Taste of the Cape festival. This free event will be held at another of the city’s fine parks—Four Freedoms–which is located off from Cape Coral Parkway behind the SunTrust Bank. (Parking is available at Capital Bank, the empty lots in the 400-block of Cape Coral Parkway, Club Square, Veteran’s Museum, and Big John’s Plaza.) This celebration runs from 12:00-6:00 and includes food, drinks, and entertainment. You can sample great food from over 20 local restaurants along with a variety of craft beers, margaritas, and wine. You can pay to sample as many or as few as you’d like! You can feel good about your participating in the sampling because 100% of the proceeds go directly to local student scholarships and music outreach programs in the community. Be sure to bring along your lawn chair to be able to relax with your samples while enjoying performances by local school groups as well as the grand finale, a performance by the Gulf Coast Symphony which will begin at 4:30. The symphony is Southwest Florida’s premier community orchestra and is celebrating its 19th season.
So, if burrowing owls and other wildlife didn’t excite you on Saturday, be sure to give this event a try on Sunday! Or, you can always attend both and get a great cross section of life in beautiful Cape Coral!
