North Orlando Zora Festival!

The Town of Eatonville is proudly sponsoring another festival in honor of Zora Neale Hurston. This yearly event is packed with all sorts of lectures, school class events and museum displays. The end to it all will be this weekend when a street festival closes Kennedy Blvd. to traffic. All sorts of merchandise such as art, clothing and food will be for sale, and a variety of music will be heard all day. The weather is supposed to be beautiful so take advantage of this long planned event.
