Forever Florida is gearing up for their annual Fall Festival Days with a jam packed schedule that features three highly attended and popular events. First up on the schedule is the Harvest Music Jam to be held on Saturday, October 10, 2009. The day‐long outdoor music festival celebrates the best of Central Florida’s local live music and arts in the amazing setting of Forever Florida’s 4700 acres of conservation and ranchlands.
Seventeen local bands and performers are scheduled to appear with an eclectic mix of music ranging from folk to rock, bluegrass and blues. Among them, Bing Futch’s blend of rock and folk, Bluegrass by Patti and Frank, the acoustic rock of Andy Cartmell, and the popular Jam band Blue Lotus. Beginning at noon and running through 10pm, guests will enjoy continuous music from two stages along with performance artists, arts and crafts vendors, food and drink all in the relaxing setting of Forever Florida.
Also, those up for some adventure will enjoy specially discounted Coach Safaris, Horseback Safaris and Zipline Safaris departing from the concert venue throughout the day. The kids, and the young at heart, can also take a dip in the old‐Florida‐style swimmin’ hole and enjoy the Camp Illahaw play area. The festival closes with a drum circle around a roaring bonfire beginning at 10pm and running into the night so guests are invited to make a night of it with overnight camping near the concert venue.
Tickets are just $5 per person for the day with no charge for kids ages 5 and under. Additional $5 per person if camping. Chairs, blankets and drums are all welcome. Gates open at 11am. Advance reservations can be made by calling toll free, 866‐85‐4EVER ext 1. Florida EcoSafaris is located at 4755 N. Kenansville Rd in St. Cloud, Florida, just one hour southeast of Orlando or 30 minutes west of Melbourne. Take US ‐192 to Holopaw, then south on US‐441 for 7.5 miles.
