Masquarade, Scarecrows and Halloween Fun

I can't believe October is nearly half way over! Wow! As the weather continues to cool ... (wishful thinking, I know! But it is much cooler than July!) ... as I was saying ... if you're looking for a reason to get outside to take in the clear blue skies, the less-humid air and enjoy the colors, scents and festivities of fall, then here are sevearl things that are a MUST DO this month!

After the kids get their tricks and treats in this Halloween, plan a little treat for yourself with a Masquerade wine dinner. Four courses, perfectly paired with wine. The trick will be that the wine is masked! Test your pallet and guess the wine. At the end of the evening, the wines will be revealed and if you guessed correctly you could win a prize! For more details on the wine dinner, click here: Black & White Masquerade Wine Dinner.

After dinner, there are three great reasons to go for a little evening stroll.

The Scarecrow Stroll -- The Mount Dora Business and Professional Women's Club are hosting the 8th Scarecrow Stroll. Light poles downtown have been decorated by local businesses and organizations with scarecrows representing the theme of "Workers Of America." Vote for your favorite at the Mount Dora Chamber of Commerce.

Art In The Air -- While you're looking at the scarecrows, be sure to also look up! This is a tri-city outdoor art exhibit featuring canvases painted by local artists. For some notes from a local artist, take a look at The Innside Story.

Gilbert Park has also officially reopened. A ribbon cutting this past weekend marked the occasion, so check out the improvements including wider sidewalks, new facilities, and of course fantastic views of the lake at sunset.
