People looking at Davie homes for sale often ask about events in Davie. There are quite a few, and one is coming up soon! The 82nd Annual Orange Blossom Festival, Parade and Rodeo is this weekend.
The Orange Blossom Festival
The free Festival is being held on Saturday and Sunday, February 23 and 24, 2019. The Town of Davie is organizing it.
The festivities start with a parade on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 12 noon. Other activities take place on Orange Drive from Davie Road to SW 66th Terrace. To make way for the fun, the city will close Orange Drive in that area.
Arts & Crafts, Food, Music, and More
Get ready for two full days with lots to do. Over 250 displays will be there for you to see. On Orange Drive, you’ll find an arts and crafts show, a food area, and live wildlife exhibits. Western and green product displays will help you stay in the Orange Blossom Festival mood.
If music gets you tapping your toe, you’ll enjoy the live bands. The kids have their own kids’ corner. And, the Women’s Club is celebrating a Strawberry Shortcake Festival. Stop by to nibble on fresh strawberries and homemade shortcake.
