Walking Mural Tour in Hollywood

Mural in Hollywood,FL
Mural at 2039 Harrison Street, Hollywood, FL

If you like arts, don’t forget that downtown Hollywood has lots of murals painted. You can take a guided tour every third Saturday, or go check out those murals yourself with a help of map and marked locations of painted art.

Nicole Salcedo is a first generation Cuban American, born and raised in Miami, Florida.  Her plant based drawings and paintings – known as “junglevision” – creates playful and more approachable jungle landscape. Turning a dense jungle into a fun landscape changes this “wilderness” into an inviting place.

Fall Festival on Halloween

It was a fun family friendly event at St. Andrews Park Road Presbyterian Church in Hollywood. There was no need to be a member of this chuch, because anyone could have joined for some fun and games. And the best part- it was FREE!

There was fun for everyone-games, face painting, bounce houses, basketball, slides, climbing wall. And lets not to forget- plenty of candy!

I hope to see you there next year.
