SANFORD – It’s been a busy year at the Central Florida Zoo, and likely to get even busier by the fall.
While the zoo at 3755 NW U.S. 17/92 in Sanford is not only offering guests its regular attractions and exhibits, it also has special events coming up, like the Red, White and Zoo weekend on June 30 and July 1, featuring a bounce house, water balls, face painting, animal encounters and kids crafts and games.
By the time summer ends, though, the zoo will be ready to start welcoming in guests to the newest attraction, courtesy of a boy and girl moving in there soon.
“On Labor Day, we’re anticipating opening the otter exhibit,” said Joe Montisano, the chief executive officer of the zoo. “These are two North American otters, and we’ll be able to see them swim and move around.” Continue reading

Those applicants, she added, are the women expected to enter the Miss Poinciana Pageant, which will be held for the first time this year, in conjunction with Poinciana’s ongoing 40th anniversary bash. Continue reading

ORLANDO — If there’s one thing the staff at Freeline Media love, it’s Fringe.
As in, the annual Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival.
And since the 21st annaul Orlando Fringe Festival, which kicked off on May 16 and continues through Memorial Day on May 28, has already broken box office records and experienced more sold out shows than at any time in recent memory, the staff at Freeline Media felt it was the perfect time to launch a long-nursed ambition: the Freeline Media Best of Fab Fringe reader’s choice picks. Since it seems like more than half of Central Florida has been to Fringe this year — selling out shows, scrambling for parking near Loch Haven Park, relaxing in the beer tent or finding things to do at Kids Fringe, Freeline Media is inviting readers to cast their vote for the best shows this year in seven different categories.
Since Freeline Media has already reviewed several of the shows, so this online magazine is well aware of the diverse talent on display this year. The Fringe continues to attract first rate artistic talent from across the globe, and Fringe gives them an opportunity to showcase that here in Orlando. Continue reading
