Hi <<First Name>>,
It might feel like the "downtime" between Halloween & Christmas but there is so much going on this month!

🚌 Open Enrollment for Polk County Schools started this week and we’ve got the details on what that means for you and your family. 

✏️ This Friday and Saturday the School Showcase is a great opportunity to learn about school options in person. There will be hundreds of booths representing schools in Polk County from PreK thought adult education. This only happens once a year so don’t miss it!

🎖️ Monday is Veterans Day and we have a list of local events including the Lakeland Veterans Day Parade.

🎤 Next week is a new collaboration from the Imperial Symphony Orchestra that is sure to be hit with your kids and teens, OR would make an awesome date night. Thum Prints combines beatboxing with the orchestra. Search Tom Thum on YouTube {or click here} and be amazed. Seriously, his videos have well over 100 million views and are AWESOME.

🏀 The Lakeland Magic season kicks off next weekend with their Home Opener on Saturday, November 16. Don't miss the $10 ticket special that includes a Lakeland Magic drawstring bag, Limited Edition Lakeland Magic Opening Night Poster, and On-Court Fan Experience.

⚽ The Florida Tropics are also gearing up for their soccer season that begins December 14, don’t miss your opportunity to get BOGO tickets. 

🎄 Guess what comes out in our newsletter next week.... the 2019 Christmas Guide! Parades, Santa Photos, Christmas concerts, Holiday attractions, Christmas lights, and more. Be on the lookout for that email next Thursday (HINT... if you check our website between now and then you'll likely start seeing holiday posts magically appear!)

WHEW! We told you things are staying busy around here!

Have a great weekend,
April Mucci
