Special Events Covid-19 Considerations

The State of Florida entered phase three of the re-opening on September 25, 2020. Under recreations it says,” large venues: (i.e. movie theaters, concert halls, auditoriums, bowling alleys, arcades, playhouses, casinos) These venues should reopen fully with limited social distancing protocols.”

The City is welcoming back fall festivals in 2020 on a smaller scale to reopen our community and provide quality of life.
