Some Cool Things To Do In North Central Florida

We do not have school tomorrow. Matter of fact this week is kind of a mixed up week. We will be doing school, in the afternoon, most days, due to morning activities. So, I thought I would share some of the fun things going on in North Central Florida, for you, and your kids to do.

Yesterday my mother, and I, took Caitlin to the Loomis Bros Circus, right here in Gilchrist County. This is a small circus that is over 50 yrs old, and travels all around Florida, and other states. Tickets were 12 dollars per person, and free for kids. Of course they had stuff you could buy, that was kind of expensive, but proceeds went to the local Character Council, so it was OK. They had a pretty good turnout, since it was freezing out. Today they are off to Alachua County, so be sure to catch them why they are there. Caitlin had a ball, it was her first circus. They did not allow picture taking, but my mom did get a picture of her riding the ponies. I will post it, as soon as she sends it to me.

Also, in Marion County, which is a bit of a drive for us, is Silver Springs, located in Ocala. DJ and Craig went last night for Fright Night. It runs from Oct 2nd through Oct 31st, on Fridays, and Saturdays from 8 PM-11 PM. Tickets are only 12 dollars, with two dollars off, if you bring 2 canned items, to donate to the needy. They had a good time, though DJ said it wasn't real scary. We are considering getting the year pass, so we can use the water park, and all events that they have.

The last cool thing I found in our local paper this week, is a fossil dig, right here in Gilchrist County. Unfortunately we can not do it, because you must be 15 yrs old, but hopefully someone else reading this can take advantage. It will be at the Thomas Farm, near the town of Bell. The dig will take place from October 24th- November 24th giving you plenty of time to participate. Time is 9AM-5PM, on Sat, Sun, Mon, and Tues. You must be able to give at least three hours of your day. For more info you can go to

Have a great Sunday, everyone.
