Annual car show is presented by the Mid Florida Alfa Romeo Owners Club and features cars from all over Florida. Saturday, November 4, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., Market Street in Celebration.

Dustin Hoffman immortalized the beauty and freedom of the Alfa Romeo “boat tail” Spider in the 1967 Oscar winning film, The Graduate, and from then on Americans fell in love with affordable, fun to drive Italian sports cars. Pininfarina, designer of the gorgeous Ferrari 250 GT, designed the Alfa Romeo Spider and the Fiat 124 Spider. Recently Alfa Romeo introduced their new supercar the 4C Coupe and this year Fiat introduces a new Fiat 124 built in cooperation with Mazda.

So if you love vintage Italian cars don’t miss Viva Alfa Romeo Car Show 2017. Head to Market Street, in the heart of downtown Celebration, Florida, on Saturday, November 4th when from 10 am until 3 pm the street will be filled with vintage Alfa Romeo, Fiat and Lancia classic cars such as: the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA, Alfa Romeo Junior Zagato GT 1300, Alfa Romeo 2000 GT Veloce, Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider, Fiat 124 Spider, Fiat 128, Fiat 850 Familiare, Lancia Monte Carlo Series, Lancia Fulvia Coupé and many more.

The annual car show is presented by the Mid-Florida Alfa Romeo Owners Club and features cars from all over Florida. Visitors can speak with owners and get up close and personal with vintage sports cars. And of course downtown Celebration also offers lots of great places to eat or just enjoy a coffee or ice cream. Alfa Romeo and Fiats left an imprint for many who grew up during the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties and today they are affordable collectible Italian sports cars. So if you’re the proud owner of an Alfa Romeo, Fiat or Lancia enter your car in the show or if you’re a car enthusiast bring the family and enjoy a day filled with vintage Italian sports cars at a wonderful location.

Celebration FL | September ongoing events 2017

Happy Labour Day!

 

 

Labour Day (Labor Day in the United States) is an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers. For most countries, Labour Day is synonymous with, or linked with, International Workers’ Day, which occurs on 1 May.
In Canada and the United States, Labour Day is celebrated on the first Monday of September and considered the unofficial end of summer, with summer vacations ending and students returning to school around then.

The form for the celebration of Labor Day was outlined in the first proposal for the holiday: A street parade to exhibit to the public “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations”, followed by a festival for the workers and their friends and families. This became the pattern for Labor Day celebrations. Speeches by prominent men and women were introduced later, as more emphasis was placed upon the civil significance of the holiday. Still later, by a resolution of the American Federation of Labor convention of 1909, the Sunday preceding Labor Day was adopted as Labor Sunday and dedicated to the spiritual and educational aspects of the Labor movement.

Labor Day is called the “unofficial end of summer” because it marks the end of the cultural summer season. Many take their two-week vacations during the two weeks ending Labor Day weekend. Many fall activities, such as school and sports begin about this time.

Good Neighbor day

 

Town Hall to recognize National Good Neighbor Day

Each year on September 28, neighbors across the United States celebrate National Good Neighbor Day. This day was created to acknowledge and celebrate the importance of a good neighbor.

In honor of that day and all of the GREAT neighbors right here in Celebration, Town Hall will say ‘thanks’ in their own way. Our Celebration neighbors are invited to stop by outside Town Hall on Thursday, September 28 for a complimentary hot dog and a heartfelt thank you. Members of Town Hall will be distributing hot dogs (appropriate condiments will also be available) between 3:30 – 6 p.m., or while supplies last.

Good neighbors often become friends, they watch out for each other, lend a helping hand and are there for advice when asked.   Neighbors are there when we need to borrow something, to get our mail for us when we are on vacation, to watch our homes and sometimes to watch our children and our pets as well as the many other things we do with our neighbors.

To celebrate National Good Neighbor Day, do something nice for your neighbor today. Use #NationalGoodNeighborDay to post on social media.

Happy Mother’s Day 2017!

 

Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May.

 

Background
Early Mother’s Day celebrations can be dated back to the spring celebrations to honor Rhea, the Mother of the Gods, in ancient Greek civilization, according to some sources. Later, Mothering Sunday in the United Kingdom was traditionally a day for people to visit the church where they were baptized, although it now also celebrates motherhood in modern times.

Symbol
Early celebrations of Mother’s Day originated from Canada’s neighboring country, the United States. Carnations are a popular Mother’s Day symbol in both Canada and the United States. Some people may choose to wear a carnation as a brooch on Mother’s Day. However, other flowers are also given to mothers or mother figures to symbolize one’s love and appreciation for them.

What do people do on Mother’s day?
Many people remember their mothers and mother figures on Mother’s Day.
Some people give cards, flowers, or chocolates, and/or make handmade items or special meals on Mother’s Day. Others take their mothers or mother figures to the movies, a restaurant, café, or a day in a park. Some mothers and mother figures also receive special gifts such as jewelry, clothing, accessories, and gift vouchers for services or products.

Mother’s Day falls on different days depending on the countries where it is celebrated. It is held on the second Sunday of May in many countries, such as Australia, Canada and the United States. It is held exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday in the United Kingdom. Sundays are usually non-school and non-working days in these countries.

St Patrick’s Day

 

5

 

St Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador on the nearest Monday to March 17 each year. It remembers St Patrick, a missionary who converted many of Ireland’s inhabitants to Christianity in the 5th century. His feast day also celebrates Irish culture.

St Patrick’s Day marks the feast day and anniversary of the death of a Christian missionary known as Patrick. He was born in the year 387, probably somewhere near the present day border between Scotland and England. At the age of 16, he was captured and taken to Ireland as a slave. During this period, he became very religious and after six years he fled back to his family.

St Patrick’s Day celebrations were brought to Canada by Irish immigrants. The day is a bank holiday in Northern Ireland and a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland. In the rest of the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and New Zealand, it is celebrated, but is not an official holiday.
People who have an Irish background or enjoy Irish culture may hold Irish themed parties and serve traditional dishes, such as Colcannon or Irish stew. Colcannon is a dish of mashed potatoes mixed with kale or cabbage and Irish stew is traditionally made with lamb and root vegetables.

Symbol

The most widely-seen St Patrick’s Day symbols are the colors green, and sometimes orange, and the shamrock. The shamrock is a symbol of Ireland and a registered trademark of the Republic of Ireland. It is the leaf of the clover plant, which grows on the ground, often among grass and an Irish Catholic symbol of the Holy Trinity. It is sometimes confused with the four-leaf clover, which is a variety of the three-leaf clover and is thought to bring good luck.

Valentine’s Day Celebration

6

 

Valentine’s Day is a time when people show feelings of love, affection and friendship. It is celebrated in many ways worldwide and falls on February 14, each year.

Valentine’s Day is an opportunity for people to tell somebody that they love them in a romantic way. It falls on February 14, the name day of two saints, St Valentine of Rome and St Valentine of Terni. In pre-Christian times, the middle of February was a time of pagan fertility festivals in Europe and allegedly the time when birds chose a mate.

Many people give gifts to loved ones on Valentine’s Day. Common gifts are:
•    Flowers, particularly red roses.
•    Chocolates and/or candy.
•    Teddy bears.
•    Toy hearts.
•    Sparkling wine.
•    Cosmetics.
•    Clothing, including lingerie.
•    Jewelry.

Many people also thought that birds chose their mates at this time of year. Around the year 1380, the English poet Chaucer wrote a poem for the first anniversary of the engagement of King Richard II to Anne of Bohemia. This is thought to be the first association between celebrations of romantic love and St Valentine’s Day on February 14. The connection remained important throughout the middle ages.

The most common symbols of Valentine’s Day are heart shapes, which are used to decorate many things, including cards, trees, wrapping paper, cookies and gift boxes. Other symbols associated with February 14 are pairs of birds, cute teddy bears, Cupid and his arrows and couples kissing or embracing. The colors red and pink are often associated with Valentine’s Day.
