Winter Park Art Festival Features Funnel Cakes, Cotton Candy, and....Oh Yeah, Art

Aaaah, spring has sprung in the Sunshine State, and so have a variety of art and garden festivals. Today marks the start of one of my favorite local events – which draws around 1,200 professional artists from around the world – the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival. Held in Central Park, alongside Park Ave. in Winter Park, Fla., the annual Festival features some of the best paintings, photography, and sculptures I have seen at art festivals around Orlando.
It is not only the art and culture, though, that draw me to the Sidewalk Art Festival every year. I love the rows and rows of booths serving up a variety of fair food. Among our favorites are the funnel cakes, kettle corn and caramel popcorn, corn dogs, grilled chicken pitas, and fresh-squeezed lemonade. You can also bring a blanket and listen to one of the many jazz artists playing through the end of the festival on Sunday.
Over the next two weeks, we will be covering some of the other top spring festivals around Orlando and the state. Which ones will you be going to?
