Groveland residents may see signs of returning to a normal life after the year-long COVID-19 pandemic forced the world to limit outdoor events, festivals, celebrations, and other public outings.
For more than a year, Americans have lived their lives in a limited capacity, forced to scale back on activities they regularly took advantage of such as shopping in public, attending festivals, carnivals, concerts, dining out, and so much more.
Due to the COVID-19 shut down, almost all public events hosted by local communities and businesses were cancelled or postponed for what most residents believed would be a few months.
After a year of living in the shut down, some residents of Groveland, Florida are beginning to see signs of returning to a normal life after city officials announced the return of their annual Founders Weekend.
The event, which is scheduled to be held from March 11 through March 13 will be one of the first large public events in the area since the coronavirus pandemic began.
The Groveland Founders Weekend is the celebration of the city’s 99th year as the “City with Natural Charm” since it was founded in 1922.
Throughout the weekend, residents can come out and enjoy vendors, food trucks, and free live entertainment.
Families are welcome to attend the free event on any of the days during the weekend.
Although the city is slowly returning to normal, officials are strongly encouraging residents that attend to wear face masks and practice social distancing at the event.
