First off, if you have not seen a show at the performing arts center, you really should make plans to do so. The center offers a nearly flawless venue to enjoy your favorite group or show. I say nearly only because parking is a little difficult and/or pricy. We ended up using valet. $35.00. Ouch!
The Hall & Oates show exceeded our expectations. It is really nice to go to a show and hear music that you know and can sing along. “I can’t go for that”, “You make my dreams” and “You’ve lost that lovin’ feeling” were crowd pleasers! The entire band was energetic and you could tell they were enjoying putting on the show as much as the audience was enjoying it.
Great shows like this one is another reason we think living near Orlando is awesome!
For the past several years, Ellen and I have attended the Florida Citrus Sports Feast on the 50 held at the Citrus Bowl. This is a really fun event showcasing many of the best college football programs from around the country.
There are plenty of events and activities for all and another advantage for living near Orlando!
We attended the Russell Athletic Bowl for the 2nd time in the last 3 years and both times were really fun! The bowl game is held every year at the Orlando Citrus Bowl. We obtained our tickets as part of our membership with Florida Citrus Sports. This year we decided to have our own mini-tailgating party. We ended up parking in lot 1, located on Central and really close to the Citrus Bowl. We did have a fan who drove down from Louisville park beside us but for the most part, the fan base in lot 1 were decked out in Miami Hurricane colors. The day was perfect with just the right temperature, good snacks, a few beers, a little corn hole and laughs with good friends.
The game did not go well for the Miami fans. Louisville dominated early and by time the 3rd quarter was ending, so too was the fun for many of the Hurricane fans as they started for the exits. Not being a real fan of either team, we joined them and headed home just before the start of the 4th quarter. Fortunately for us, the fireworks show was held at half time, so our leaving before the end of the game did not result in our missing the light show.
If you get a chance to attend an event at the Citrus Bowl, I would suggest you do. Throughout the year there are many events held there that should appeal to most anyone living in or near Orlando!
