It’s almost Mother’s Day, and 2021 is starting to look a lot better than last year for celebrating your mom/mother figure.
Many restaurants and attractions are back open, and offering special deals or dinners/brunches to enjoy. Plus, a lot of people are getting vaccinated, making it safer to spend time together.
I’ve perused all the listings and press emails, and here are CitySurfing Orlando’s picks for celebrating moms on Mother’s Day, May 9, 2021. All prices do not include tax or gratuity (please don’t forget to tip!). Under the restaurant list are some fun events happening to enjoy with mom, too.
The Color Run is a five-kilometer, untimed event. At each kilometer mark, Color Runners are doused from head to toe in a different colored powder. Participants wear white at the starting line and finish the race plastered in color. Once the race is over, the fun continues at the Finish Festival, a larger-than-life party equipped with music, dancing, photo ops, activity booths, vendors, and more massive color throws, which create millions of vivid color combinations.
$19.99-$39.99 | Kids (8 and under) $14.99

This time of year, we’d normally be offering up a huge list of Easter dining and family events for you to enjoy, but 2021 is different with COVID-19 and the quarantine.
Thankfully, with more people getting vaccinated, local restaurants and other businesses are offering more Easter brunches and dinners, as well as fun Easter-themed things to do as a family.
So if you’re celebrating Easter this year, here is our list of dining and events worth checking out. Please be careful – wear your masks and social distance. Restaurants listed have pledged to observe COVID safety protocols.
It may not be snowing, but Central Florida loves a good holiday party. But I also know funds are tight this time of year, with everyone shopping to complete their Christmas lists.

MidiCi in Kissimmee is one of our favorite place to enjoy pizza in Central Florida, and during February, there’s another reason to visit: the #IHeartMidiCi Charity Pizza Drive, where dining out helps others.
Earlier this month, the restaurant invited 8 local foodies to create a unique pizza to reflect their personality and food preferences using our wide variety of fresh, natural, high quality ingredients (which include gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options).
The Charity Pizzas are available for all guests to order through the month of February and $2 per pizza sold will be donated to their charity of the blogger’s choosing.
