The Art Hives Network connects small and regenerative community arts studios together in order to build solidarity across geographic distances.  This effort seeks to strengthen and promote the benefits of these inclusive, welcoming spaces known as "public homeplaces." These spaces create multiple opportunities for dialogue, skill sharing and art-making between people of differing socio-economic backgrounds, ages, cultures and abilities. This will be the topic of the Creative Placemaking Symposium being held at UCF Saturday 9:30 to 4 at 4143 Andromeda Loop. For more information go to artsforhealthflorida.org.

Large train layouts, a real train that kids can ride, Scale Model Railroad Items for Sale and more can be seen at the 51st Annual Florida Railfair and Model Show Saturday and Sunday starting at 9 in the morning at the Volusia County Fairgrounds. For more information go to volusiacountyfair.com.

Residents can bring their live Christmas trees to a recycling drop-off location to be recycled and mulched on site and swap it out for a new containerized planted real tree at the St Cloud Christmas Tree Swap Saturday starting at 9 in the morning at Peghorn Nature Park in St Cloud.

Live entertainment, live music and barbecue will be happening to commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act at the MLK South Street jazz and blues cookout Saturday starting at 11 at the John Hackson Community Center.
