The Pet Photo Shoot Fundraiser in Orlando will feature plenty of fun photos of fun pets.


Are you in the market for some sweet pics of your pup? AGoldPhoto Pet Photography, a husband and wife team, has hosted pet photo fundraisers all around the country. Since 2016, they have raised more than $150,000 for upward of 60 animal charities and this weekend they come to Orlando!

I’m sure you may have seen an episode of the buzz-worthy, hidden-camera TV show “Impractical Jokers.” The group of pranksters are constantly making viewers at home — and each other — laugh uncontrollably. Murr, a jokester from the show, and NSYNC legend Joey Fatone are pairing up for a night you won’t forget. Read on to hear which location in Orlando you can meet them at.

Is being active a goal of yours for 2020? Being out in nature more often is one of mine. This event in Kissimmee combines both of those goals for a night on the water with views of the full moon.

Finally, there are spaces available for kiddos to learn kitchen skills with Kids Cooking Connection at The Winter Garden Masonic Lodge this weekend. They will learn how to do things like read a recipe and bake their own sweets. They are able to take all of their recipes home with them.
