Living in Central Florida gives residents plenty of opportunity to keep outings casual…but we also like to get dressed up for a night on the town and enjoy the finer things. A bonus: fancier events usually benefit worthwhile local charities and local arts- and not always with a hefty price tag. Here are five great ways to delve deeper and explore great Central Florida events in the next month.
