Orlando-Area Easter Egg Hunts

Friday, April 18th

Clean out your closet and get a cute new outfit? Uh. Maze. Drop off your clothes Thursday night and get in for $10 or bring them to the event Friday at 6:00pm and get in for $15. This is your chance to rummage, shop, and pick up free goodies and coffee. It's all happening at the 2014 Spring Swap & Shop.

At 7:30pm, the College Park Community Center's Monthly Movie Night will be showing Frozen. (Singing along to "Let it Go" discouraged...just kidding, I don't know.)
