A Bears and Lions show is a musical spectacle like no other.

Hailing from Gainesville, Florida, these animals escaped the circus to break the rules and expectations of age-free/cage-free music by inspiring children to be more accepting, tolerant, and adventurous in everyday life.

Their show is a collective of animals that includes a Gorilla, a Zebra, a Giraffe, a Moose, and a Bison, playing family-friendly rock and Americana that quickly makes fans of kids and parents alike. Together, this band of wild animals motivates kids to get up and dance, engage and even participate in the show!

    5:00 pmLake Wales Park, Lake Wales, FL

    Join us for a weekend of authentic Florida food, music, artisan goods, and craft beer!

    With its abundance of live oaks and palmetto trees, Lake Wailes Park exudes sleepy, Old Florida allure. But come December, it will pulse with excitement when the state’s greatest barbecue teams, regional musicians, craft beer aficionados, and bespoke tastemakers assemble for the Orange Blossom Revue.

    This sophisticated soiree, named in honor Central Florida's citrus heritage, grew out of a longtime barbecue fundraiser hosted by the Lake Wales Rotary Club.

    The event will take place on November 30 and December 1, 2018 and will be held along the shores of beautiful Lake Wailes Park located at the intersection of Park Avenue and Lake Shore Boulevard in Lake Wales, FL.
