Lake Nona Events

Lake Nona is home to Orlando’s Medical City, the US Tennis Association tennis center, and lots of great moms! Here’s what we have going on just around the corner:

 

August 27 – Panther Pride Family Night

Come out to the Eagle Creek Belfry Restaurant from 5-8PM and support Eagle Creek Elementary School and PTA. Food, beverages, and ice cream will be sold. ***Cash is preferred.*** A portion of food and drink sales will go to Eagle Creek PTA to be used to support school programs. The driving range will be open for the kids to enjoy the outdoors. Bring your soccer balls, frisbees, and kick balls. Tables and chairs will also be set up. We hope to see you there!

 

July 31 – Eagle Creek Carnival Night

Friday, July 31 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Come meet your neighbors at the Eagle Creek Carnival Night! There will be bounce houses, face painting, balloons, and games for the neighborhood children. For the adults, local vendors will share their wares. Grab a bite to eat at the clubhouse, where select food will be discounted for the evening. A portion of the food sales will go to the Eagle Creek Elementary PTA. And, before you go, please join us for a free Zumba class!

If you wish to volunteer or set up a booth, please email eaglecreekevents@gmail.com and provide your name and business description. Volunteers must be 13 years or older. There is a $25 space fee and the vendor must supply the table and chairs. Unfortunately, food items cannot be provided or sold during this event due to liability.

 

July 18 – Back to Nature Wildlife Refuge 6th Annual Baby Squirrel Shower

Have you seen any squirrels since you moved here? Chances are, construction and lack of trees may have made these little animals elusive. Come thrill your children with a close-up look at squirrels during the Baby Squirrel Shower on Saturday, July 18th from 10am to 1pm. They’ll have activities, food, prizes, wild encounters, games, and education stations. Kids under 5 are free but they ask for a $5 donation per adult to help with ongoing care of the animals.

Fun facts about squirrels to share with your children are their knack at pretending to hide food by digging a hole, placing an invisible object in the hole, and then covering it up. They also stash food everywhere for an impromptu meal. If I replace “food” with “toys”, they sound like my preschooler!

Check out the activity page at btnwildlife.org to learn about the 24 resident animals you may encounter at the refuge. They are looking forward to meeting their new neighbors!

If you are interested in volunteering, information can be found on the BTN website. The refuge is located at 10525 Clapp Simms Duda Road, 5 minutes away from Eagle Creek and right off of Narcoossee Road.
