Go to the dogs at WoofStock Islamorada, held this year on March 16th. A fun and fantastic family event for humans and dogs alike. Held at the beautiful Founder’s Park, there will be plenty of contests and games for our four-legged friends as well as plenty of music and food for the human souls. Some of the well-known bands that will be filling the air with music, both from the Keys and further afield, are the Steve Venini Band, Men of Leisure, Luke Sommer Glenn Band, Steve Webb and Scott Youngberg.
The event raises awareness of the many unwanted pets and helps in raising money for their adoptions. So put your paw of approval on this great cause, come on down and help out someone’s new best friend!
If that is not enough fun for the month of March in the Keys, head down to Key Largo for the 13th annual Underwater Easter Egg Hunt held on March 31. Get some “egg-ercise” and dive into the warm waters of the Florida Bay while searching for colorful Easter Eggs and the grand prize of the “golden egg”. You will think you had too much to drink last night when a diving Easter bunny swims by – but that is all part of the fun. Held as a fundraiser for “Kids in Special Situations”, benefiting local area’s needy children.
You must sign up in advance for the boat trip to the special reef, which is open to both snorkelers and divers alike, and runs around $85 per diver or $30 per adult snorkeler/$20 for a child. It all starts at 8AM at the Atlantis Dive Shop, MM106.5, in Key Largo. For more information on places to stay, dine and play in Key Largo check out www.vacationplanit.com.
Hop on down and join in the fun! This is “eggs-actly” what you have been waiting for!
