Ocala Christmas Parade Coming Soon!

DATE OF PARADE: December 10th, 2011

TIME: Parade begins at 5:30 PM!

THEME: “A Florida Christmas for Everyone!”

The Parade attracts over 60,000 spectators from Ocala/Marion County and surrounding counties who line up along more than 2 miles of East Silver Springs Blvd in Ocala, Florida.  Some of these spectators arrive as early as the Friday before the parade to “mark their spot” with lawn chairs,  trucks, flatbed trailers or motor homes.

I’m looking forward to seeing you there! Teresa Fikaris, “Your Ocala Buyers Agent”

“Light Up Ocala”

The crowds were tremendous tonight on the Downtown Square as people waited for 7:30 to arrive, and the countdown to “Light Up Ocala”. Bands played and vendors lined the streets. A good time was had by all who came out for this event.

Excitement filled the air in anticipation for “Light Up Ocala”. If you’ve never been, it’s a must next year!

Oh by the way, if you know anyone looking to buy a home in our lovely town, call me at: 352-208-5874.

Poster Signing by “Horse Fever” Artists

I enjoyed meeting and getting signatures of some of my favorite “Horse Fever” Artists today. It was great to share with them my love for their art, and how I’ve gone all over the county taking photos of the horses to share with my friends, family and potiental clients. One of the artist asked me for my website…. (which has not been completed as of yet).  I think she will love the photos once they are put on my site.

Lisa Russo was one of the Artists that I had the pleasure to meet tonight. Click on the link below to see what her inspiration was for her art.

Launched by the Marion Cultural Alliance in 2001, “Horse Fever” included 52 life-sized fiberglass horses decorated by area artists. They were displayed around town for months before they were sold at an auction that raised $1.2 million for charity.

27 of the 52 horses remain in the community.

In 2005, MCA created a traveling herd of horses, dubbed “Horse Fever in Motion.” These horse statues travel to events and move throughout the community. Many are currently on display, including “Coat of Many Colors” at the Marion County Library headquarters and “Oak-ala” at Wrigley Fields in Citra.

The project was a huge success, and people are still buying “Horse Fever” books and souvenirs at the Brick City Center for the Arts.

The most recent (2011) set of “Horse Fever” statues just recently came out. There were 27 horses in all.

“Horse Fever” statues also can be found throughout the county.

What’s Happening in Ocala — Horse Fever!!

I got “Horse Fever” today. I spent five hours driving around Ocala and Marion County taking pictures of the “Horse Fever” horses that were painted by local artists.

Here’s a great article that appeared in the Ocala Star Banner by one of the artists.
