Spotlight: Bastille Day, Save Me Dolly Parton, and Sneaker Ball

Every Friday afternoon, Mark Baratelli, publisher of The Daily City, shares his picks for can’t-miss weekend events in Central Florida.

Why do French People eat snails? Because they don't like fast food! Where do fruits go on vacation? Pear-is. What does a frog in Paris eat French Flies. If you like this than you’re five years old. If you like French stuff you’ll love Audubon Park’s Bastille Day! Enjoy a whole evening schedule of live music, food specials, a Moulin Rouge Show, a French Artisan Market, a Marie Antoinette character and more during Audubon Park’s Bastille Day Saturday starting at 3 at Audubon Park Garden District.

Did you miss the show at the Orlando Fringe this year that won patrons pick and Best of the Fest Top 20 called “Save Me Dolly Parton”? Well here’s your chance to save yourself and see it! It’s one very pregnant woman’s witty story of politics, pop-culture and parenting. Public humiliations are endured, babies ride in planes, and feminism is explored. Save Me Dolly Parton returns to the stage Saturday at 8 at Theatre West End in Sanford.

Attend a formal gala ball called Laced up: Sneaker Ball. The purpose of which is to show off your best looking semi-formal attire and your dopest kicks! Yes! Its gowns and tuxes, frocks and waistcoats, cummerbunds and cleavage, mixed with Air Jordan Travis Scott 1 “Cactus Jacks,” Nike React Presto “Brutal Honey’s, and Gucci mini GG espadrille sneakers. Laced up:Sneaker Ball is Saturday at 10 at the Abbey.
