Orlando Events


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They’re coming to get you, Orlando.

This year marks the 6th annual Zombietoberfest, the coolest Zombie festival around and right here in our own backyard on the streets of APGD.  Are you excited?  Are you frightened?  Are you going?!

We can all agree that zombies are a nuisance, right? So do your part to stop the outbreak by joining the Zombie Outbreak Cure Scavenger Hunt from 2 to 6pm, grab some friends, meet at Blue Bird Bake Shop at 2pm and go catch yourself some zombies!  If you prefer to befriend some zombies over stopping them then be sure to head on over to Warrior One Power Yoga where all Zombies can enjoy free yoga at 5pm.   Then at 6 the streets come alive, or dead, however you want to look at it.  Either way, bring your appetite because food trucks will be there serving…BRAINS!  Brains for dinner, brains for lunch, brains for breakfast, brains for brunch…nah, we’re just kidding!  There will be food trucks but they won’t be serving brains, just their specialties, which are probably much tastier then brains anyway.   Costume contests, live music, a zombie crawl, movies, kids activities, the list goes on!  One of the most fun, family friendly Halloween events that you will find!  So fun, in fact, that the Orlando Weekly declares it as one of their Top 100 Things to Do in Orlando Before You Die.  You can find all the gory details here, here and here (for merch and tickets, where required).

Next weekend is for the dogs!

Each year Lambs Eat Ivy Salon hosts Shampooch, a dog washing fundraiser to help raise money for a local animal shelter or rescue. There have been a total of 10 rescues helped and over $50,000 raised, that’s pretty impressive! This year the chosen rescue is Florida Little Dog Rescue, a rescue whose focus is on the little guys!

Now, this isn’t just a dog wash, it’s a huge event with so much to do! There will be a Block and Bark Party, professional pet portraits, food trucks, music, raffle prizes (an iPad!!) and so much more!  It is such a fun event and you by no means have to have a dog to enjoy the fun.  But if you don’t have a dog, we suggest you walk on down to Lake Eola and adopt one from Barktoberfest where there will be more than 50 rescue partners promoting adoption!

Lambs Eat Ivy Salon  – 804 E Washington St

TONIGHT IS OPENING NIGHT!

Don’t go alone, don’t make a sound, pretend you’re a stone.

There are still a few open seats so hurry and get your tickets NOW!  And don’t worry, if we do sell out, and I’m sure we will, you can just come to the show another night!

And just in case you haven’t heard about it…

Local artists Patrick Fatica and Blue Star have once again put their creative minds together to bring you yet another experiment in storytelling titled  Monster.  After the success of their past collaborations, ‘Hammers and Lambs’ and ‘Shadows of the Waifs’ they decided to bring something a little different to the table.  Using paper cutouts Fatica created a stop motion film about 5 little girls that get lost in the forest and fall victim to their vices, that film was the inspiration behind Star’s stage performance.  Dark and beautiful is something these two always seem to get just right!

If you are not familiar with these two locals be sure to visit one of this month’s shows and support the exciting art that is found surrounding Downtown Orlando in the Mills50 and Ivanhoe Village Main Street districts. This is definitely a show you do not want to miss and a perfect start to the Halloween season!
