Avalon Park Celebrates the Holidays with Annual Avalon Aglow Event

One of my favorite things about the holidays in Central Florida (other than no snow!) is that it’s cool enough outside to enjoy outdoor activities but not too cold to be outside.

I also love that many of the local communities celebrate the holidays with outdoor events like parades and such. One of these is the upcoming Avalon Aglow in downtown Avalon Park area of town (East Orlando, 5 miles south of th 408 Expressway on Alafaya Trail).

This will be the tenth year of Avalon Aglow and it will feature amusement rides, live music, food and drink for purchase and more. Highlights of the event will be the Holiday Parade at 3pm with Santa Claus, and the winter fireworks extravaganza at 9pm.

Toys for Tots will also be at the event collecting new unwrapped toys valued at $10 or more for children. Everyone who donates a toy or $10 will be entered into a raffle to win prizes.

Avalon Aglow takes place December 3, 2011, in downtown Avalon Park, and is free for all to attend. This is a great way to spend the day with the family.

Avalon Park to Hold Jubilee Fall Carnival November 18-20, 2011

I got the flyer artwork in an email about this weekend’s upcoming Jubilee Fall Carnival at Avalon Park.

Unfortunately I don’t have much information other than what’s on the flyer:

It takes place at Tanja King Memorial Park this Friday, November 18, from 3-10pm and also this Saturday and Sunday, November 19 and 20, from 10am to 10pm each day.

According to the Avalon Park reps, there will be several rides including: Cliffhanger, Construction Zone, Cuckoo Haus, Larson Fireball, Fire Chief, Mini Indy Scooter, Monkey Maze, Pop-A-Wheelie, Sky Flyer, Super Slide and Wind Jammer Inflate. Wrist bands for unlimited rides will be $15.

If you’re on that side of town and looking for something to do with the family this weekend, it might be worth checking out.

It’s also worth noting that on Friday night, Avalon Park will also be holding their free Movie Under the Stars monthly event nearby at Town Park. This month’s film is “Zookeeper” with Kevin James.
