Happy Friday everyone! We ended the workweek on a good note weatherwise....and it looks like a great weekend ahead. And there's plenty to do around north-central Florida.
How about a little exercise to get your weekend started? And nothing makes you feel better about exercise than doing it to raise money for a worthy cause. In this case it's fighting heart disease and stroke. The American Heart Association's Alachua Start! Heart Walk starts early on Saturday....7:30 to be exact. You can join in the fun at the North Florida Regional Medical Center duck pond. It's a three mile walk and the weather should be great. Your text to link...
What about a little swimming, biking and running? Try out the Kids-4-Kids Triathlon and Fun Run at
Haile Plantation Golf and Country Club. It's open to 4-18 year olds and benefits the Child Advocacy
Center, Cure Dales Duchenne and Shands Childrens Hospital. Registration starts at seven Saturday morning...with the fun run beginning at eight....the triathlon follows. The entry fee is $50 for the triathlon and $25 for the fun run. Medals and trophies will be awarded. Your text to link...
A little later in the day you can take in the Downtown Latino Festival in Gainesville. It's in it's ninth year and will feature good food and good music. It's free and runs from noon to 5 pm Saturday at the Bo Diddley Community Plaza....111 East University Avenue in Gainesville.
And ending on a musical note...we have a little country music to finish your day. The award winning
country star Sara Evans will be performing in Ocala on Saturday. The show starts at 6 pm. Tickets are $35 the day of the show. It's at the Ocala Entertainment Complex....1227 SW 17th Avenue in Ocala. Your text to link...
