Enjoy music from a variety of genres each Sunday afternoon in November at Flamingo Gardens. Bring a lawn chair or comfy blanket and enjoy lunch or snacks available for purchase at the Flamingo Pond Snack Bar and Grill, while listening to toe-tapping tunes.
Guests may also enjoy viewing the traveling exhibit Masters of the Night – The True Story of Bats. Often misunderstood as blind, squeaky, creatures who suck blood and get tangled in your hair, this exhibit debunks myths and opens your eyes to the wondrous world of Bats. Learn how gentle bats really are and their many benefits to the environment through lifelike models, multisensory interactive displays, and environmentally realistic settings.
