No matter what your plans are this weekend, I think there's going to be an event to fit your needs.
For starters, the St. Lucie County Fair will be kicking off its opening day on Friday, Feb. 22. It runs all week, and there are plenty of ride and admission specials, so pick a day and have some fun.
But if you don't want to wait for your fun, head over to the Port St. Lucie Civic Center. On Saturday and Sunday, the Festival Italiano will take over the outside, with lots of entertainment and food.
Inside the civic center, on Feb. 23, the local talent show will feature lots of residents doing what they do best. This is the fourth year for the talent show, and it just gets better and better every year. Admission is only $5 per person, and after everyone performs, a winner will be announced.
On the business side of things, fingers crossed with the news that Bass Pro Shops might be coming to Port St. Lucie. A lot of people here are avid fishermen, campers and hunters, and it would be a great thing to have something this big right here in Port St. Lucie. The process has just begun and it's going to take awhile, but I'll keep you posted as the application makes its way through the system.
If supporting the many nonprofit groups in the area are more your thing, head out to Miriam's Magical Cruising for Your Cause from 2 to 5 p.m. on Feb. 26 at the St. Lucie West Jetson Appliance store at 1763 N.W. St. Lucie West Blvd. in Port St. Lucie.
The free event will feature many nonprofit groups in the community, including United for Families, Harvest Food and Outreach, the Council on Aging St. Lucie County and many more.
Enjoy your week!
