A Message From Mayor Bagshaw
Dear Edgewood Friends and Neighbors,
Unless you are new to Edgewood, you know that the City comes alive after
September for the great fall and winter holiday season at Edgewood City Hall and Bagshaw Park …
The season kicks off on Friday, October 19th with Edgewood's Halloween Spook-tacular! Its "Trick or Treat" time for all the two and/or four-legged goblins. Don't be scared - it's family fun for everyone, so come dressed up to join the all-ages costume contest. Goody bags, hot dogs and chips for the costumed kids. And...Edgewood Eats - 3rd Friday Food Trucks for everyone else. Our favorite DJ will be spinning the Monster Mash throughout the evening! 6 - 9 pm.
If it's November - it must be "Light Up Edgewood" time. Gather around the City Christmas Tree on Friday, November 16th in Bagshaw Park and join for the countdown for the lighting of Edgewood's Arizona cypress tree, Bagshaw Park, City Hall, and the Police Department. You will love the festive feel when the city lights up and the park sparkles in color. We will have live music, Edgewood's own "The Dancer's Pointe" dancers for entertainment, a Holiday Car Show and cruise and a great variety of food from Edgewood Eats Food Trucks. 6 - 9pm (We light up the Christmas Tree at 7 pm).
For 2018 - the City is partnering with the Orlando Union Rescue Mission and the Ronald McDonald House for our local Holiday Charity drive. Both of these local organizations do great things in our community and help those in need. Edgewood's residents and businesses have always had a big heart and have contributed greatly to our Holiday charity drive. We are accepting household supplies, personal hygiene supplies, gift cards and of course toys for the little ones. Please see page 15 for a complete list of what the City is collecting for the drive.
Hello December! Santa arrives by helicopter December 14th! Santa's arrival is the 2nd Friday of December this year (the 14th) so everyone (including Santa of course), has time to prepare for the holidays. And, sometimes even Santa has to deal with holiday traffic, so his ETA is now 7:15 PM. City Hall will be decked out for Santa so bring your camera/ phones and have your family photo taken with your favorite person. Children can write letters to Santa at the North Pole while they wait to see him. We'll also have live entertainment, food trucks and fun throughout the evening. Come early or stay late for this memorable holiday evening. 6 pm - 9:30 PM. Whether you are a newcomer or a long time resident, I hope that you will make these City Events a part of your holiday traditions. Come and join us for the season’s fun and festivities!
