The Sanford Mistle Toad

I thought this was really cute. Don’t you love our city Mistle Toad? You’ll see it sitting at the corner of First Street with Park Avenue.

There are not that many holiday events in Sanford left on the list (see below) but when you get to downtown Sanford next time make sure to walk around to see those beautiful holiday lights. What a great job of decorating the city has done! Jose was in Miami a couple of days ago and said Sanford has more lights up than Miami!!

Here are the 4 events that I still have left on the holiday list for Sanford. Be sure though to check out the complete holiday event list here:

The Gateway Orchestra

The Gateway Orchestra is comprised of volunteer musicians who love music and love performing. They share a common bond of a passion for music and a willingness to share their passion with the community. This concert is presented by the City of Sanford Economic Development Department and sponsored by Lake Shore Software of Sanford.
