Local Events for Lake City Florida

Last Saturday, Lake City had the first annual Changing Times Festival. It was great, and the hope is that they will be another one next year. The crowd was small, but there was one there, so it is believed that this can be made into something that people in Lake City well come out and enjoy. Also, Saturday was the last night of the Columbia County Fair, so that could have had something to do with it to.

What is Happening, Lake City FL?

We have over the last few months, here in Lake City, been growing with new restaurants. From Longhorn to Olive Garden and now Chick-Fil-A. They have been some more rumors of other restaurants and businesses coming to Lake City. Image

I just went by there, today at approx. 1:00 pm, and this is what I found. I found a great atmosphere with what looked like a small tent City. What is going on? Is that tomorrow 6/13/13, Chick-Fil-A will open in Lake City, Florida. Lake City has been wanting this for a long time. The Lake City Fl, Chick-Fil-A, is also giving out to the first 100 customers tomorrow, a Chick-Fil-A Meal once a week to them for one year.

There where several tents set up and people hanging out everywhere. Most of the people that I seen had a white wrist band on it, as they had check in to be one of the 100 people for the Grand Opening.

ImageIt is very hot today with the temperature in the 90’s. Chick-Fil-A, had a PA System and was having games, so that the people there had something to do. Other then being hot and sleeping in a tent, who knows, maybe I needed to be out there. LOL!

Happenings in Lake City Florida

They where several events last weekend that went on in and around Lake City Florida. One of them was the Florida Folk Festival. It start last Friday and went through Sunday. This weekend they is not as much going on, but they are a thing or two.

1. If you are in Lake City FL, be sure to be on the lookout for a big Black Bear. It has been spotted over the last few days off of Hwy. 47 around Ridge Road. State Wildlife Officers are aware and have advice to leave the bear alone.

2. The 4th Annual Fam Fest is June 1, 2013 at Wilson Park in Lake City FL. It will also include the Farmers Market and a Car Show. The Fest starts at 8 am with a 5K Run/Walk check-in, with the race starting at 9 am.

On the Lake City FL real estate news, this week, it looks like to me, that the buyers are out looking a little more, but they are hard to get an offer out of them. I have heard that interest rates are fixing to go up a small amount, because of the larger City are seeing an upswing in homes being sold.
