Mardi Gras 2017

It was another successful event here in Dunedin FL.  Everyone came out to celebrate Fat Tuesday to enjoy the parade and the street performers.  It was a beautiful warm evening, warmer then usual, but it did not stop the festivities.  Street vendors included local bites as well as larger chain merchants, Gipsys, fortune tellers, painters, sculptors, and musicians. Downtown was closed off from traffic allowing pedestrians and vendors enjoy the event safely.  The parade began shortly after 7pm lead by Florida Auto Exchange.  The floats from local businesses were impressive for such a quaint town.  School percussion band, baton twirlers, and show girls from a performance agency also filled the parade route to entertain the crowds.  Beads were flung off the bow of a pirate float onto the anxious crowds. Music and shouts filled the air along with the scent of the street food.  Laughter, and good spirits energized the streets of downtown Dunedin.  Family friendly, dog friendly, all ages came to join the fun before the fasting for lent. Plenty of parking was made …

Dia De Los Muertos 2016

Happy Halloween!  Another Day Of The Dead event went without disappointment.  Everywhere I pointed my camera there was a great costume to snap a picture of.  The festivities began at 3 pm and continued on till 10 pm ending with a great street parade.  The temperature was in our lower 80’s with clear skies.  The day was perfect and the spirit of the celebration was high.  The creativity of the local citizens was impressive to say the least.  Wow!  What a spectacular display of creativity and talent.  We hope to see you again next year!

Oktoberfest 2016 Dunedin Brewery

While Hurricane Matthew threatened our east coast, those who ventured out to not miss the local festivities of this years Oktoberfest, the Dunedin Brewery still hosted their annual celebration with beer, sausage, and great live music. On Saturday night the featured outdoor band was the Joe Marcinek Band which when I briefly spoke with Joe he stated he was originally from Chicago.  JMB music is funky, jazzy, and with a little rock-n-roll.  I enjoyed discovering their compilations of old-school sounds with their original tracks.  Made up of guest musicians, (Steve Molitz on keyboard, Freekbass on bass, drummer Pete Koopmans, and an unidentified saxophone player) Joe Marcinek Band gave us an evening filled with good vibes and electric sounds that made the crowd dance the night away.
