March Madness Fizzles Out

After a strong start, March Madness, Florida Style, has vanished. So many fun and exciting events canceled. Motorcycle Racing, Surfing Competitions, Jet Ski Racing, Art and Crafts Festivals, Live Music events, Equestrian events, Motorcycle Rally’s, NBA, MLB, PGA,  and much much more. Only one reason, one-word #Virus!  Now, restaurants are closed, except for drive-thru or take-out! Bars and Nightclubs were the first to temporarily shutter! How many will re-open, following an economic crunch, remains to be seen.

By now one can just type or hashtag the word ‘virus’ and the brain will complete the story.

Almost every county in the great state of Florida has, had, or is having an event canceled.

FL Coast Names - Rocket Riviera

The ‘Rocket Riviera’ is an area that makes up much of Central Florida, stretching from Indian River County north to Flagler County that has some connection to the aerospace community. Plus, approximately 150 miles of coastline launch viewing spots.


From the top, clockwise: Daytona 200, AquaX Daytona, Daytona Bike Week, and World Surf League QS 1500 in Cocoa Beach.

The NCAA basketball season was drawing to an end and ramping up for the ‘Final Four’ tournament. Tampa, FL was a first and second round stop beginning in April.

A unique event in Tavares, Florida featuring old-style ‘woody’ boats, seaplanes, a marine flea market and, much more. Situated at Wooton Park on Lake Dora. The Sunnyland Antique Boat Festival was scheduled for March 20-22, 2020.  Brought to you by ‘The Antique And Classic Boat Society Inc’ and ‘Sunnyland Antique & Classic Boat Society’.  Come back next year ya’ll!

Everyone looks forward to these events next year, 2021. In the meantime, perhaps April showers will bring our great state events back up and running.  Be safe.
