Frugal Family Activity for this Weekend – Greek Festival October 15, 2010

Looking for something fun for the whole family to do this weekend?  On a budget?  You’ve come to the right place!

The Greek Festival is celebrating it’s 100th Anniversary this weekend.  The Pensacola Greek Festival is one the area’s most popular outdoor festivals. This 3 day cultural event provides an opportunity for the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church to share their culture and faith with the Pensacola community.  It’s free to go hang out and watch all of the singing and dancing under the big tent.  Food is available, and all of it is reasonably priced (nothing over $10).  You can get the menu (with prices), activity schedule, and more here.  Be prepared to walk a little to get to the festival and don’t arrive hungry – the lines for food are huge, and you may be waiting in line for close to an hour.

Children are sure to enjoy the songs and dancing that is almost always going on under the big tent.  Crowd participation is encouraged!


A Trip to Plaza de Luna Park – Pensacola September 13, 2010

Last Friday, since I knew my husband would not be getting in until late, I decided to take Little Miss to a park a couple of miles from our house.

I had some fries to feed the seagulls, and I was hoping to get some photos of the pelicans that often hang out there.

We got there and there wasn’t a pelican in sight, but we did have a wonderful time feeding the gulls and the pigeons that hang out there!

The gulls will catch the fries in the air, which is pretty fun to watch.  I was hoping to get an action shot, but didn’t manage since I was throwing the fries and taking the pictures!

I was a little nervous about how Little Miss would do around such aggressive birds, but she didn’t get scared and the birds didn’t try to take anything directly out of her hand.

After we fed the birds, we walked out on the pier to look at the boats and enjoy the view.

It was so nice to be able to enjoy the outdoors without all of the heat!!
