Happenings in March on I-Drive

Thursday, March 1, 2018
March is here, and I-Drive has many different events that will make your month a memorable one. There are so many events going down on International Drive that we wanted to point out just a few that we know you won’t want to miss.
The Seven Seas
SeaWorld’s Seven Seas Festival first debuted last year and was such a hit that it has made a return this Spring! The festival runs through April 15th and features countless booths serving up delicious dishes that have been hand crafted using organic ingredients, cage-free eggs, regional produce, and sustainable seafood. As you're strolling through the park, you’ll be offered sample-sized dishes from around the world! We’re talking everything from a German inspired dish of Weiner Schnitzel Sliders, a Caribbean inspired dish that features Cinnamon Slow Roasted Pork Belly with Sweet Plantain Mash, a Polynesian Island dish of Pineapple Tofu poke Bowl, okay so you get the point. Check out a whole list of the worldly dishes available at the festival here. If all of this was not enough, we would be doing you a disservice not to mention that there is an entertainment piece to this festival that will surely make your entire experience an unforgettable one. Just some of the artists performing at the Bayside Stadium for this festival include Chris Young, Daughtry, and the Eli Young Band!

Getting Down to Business
Home improvement, we all love it; but, at times it can feel like a huge undertaking and can easily overwhelm those involved. Are you a homeowner looking to finally make those home improvements you have been thinking about for a while now? If your answer was yes, then the Orlando Home & Garden Show is where you need to be on March 10th and 11th. Come to the Orange County Convention Center on Saturday from 11 am to 7 pm, or Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm to finally make some head way on those projects you’ve been meaning to start… or finish. Some things to expect while you’re here are to meet contractors, landscapers and other builders face to face to discuss your plans. As well as get a ton of information and inspiration from vendors showcasing everything you can think up; windows, baths, kitchens, solar power, garden displays, outdoor furniture, closets, pools, spas, flooring carpeting, paving, decks, and even security systems. Your Saturday or Sunday spent at the show will prove to be very productive, and we wouldn’t want anyone facing a home improvement project to miss it!
It’s March…
