Winter Park Art Festival, Weather and a New Week

March 23rd, 2009 7:36 AM by David W. Welch

You would never guess that we were in a recession by the crowds at the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival this weekend. I finally got over there yesterday, and it was packed. If you have never been there, it runs through the park for several blocks with the streets closed down. It was jammed everywhere you turned. All the artists had tons of people at their tents, and the "food court" area was packed. The streets and sidewalks were crowded everywhere. My guess is that this years festival was a huge success. My favorite pieces were the life size grizzly bear, and horse made out of nails.

While the weekend was very sunny and warm, today we are getting a little break with temperatures in the mid seventies. It has been raining this morning, but should be lifting as the day goes on. For those of you where there is still snow on the ground and gray skies, we have a nice change for you down here in Orlando. You deserve a spring break, so come on down and enjoy the weather. Speaking of spring break, Orange County Public Schools finish up on Thursday this week with spring break starting on Friday. I'm sure the kids will be enjoying the break.

Look for a new listing this evening here on my Orlando real estate blog. A terrific buy in Lake of the Woods. A three bedroom two and a half bath with two car garage and nearly 1,900 sq feet of living, not to mention a big screened porch. Look for it to be priced thousands below recent sales. The best part, is that it is not a short sale.
