Belle Isle Celebration Tomorrow, Featuring the Crawford House!

The City of Belle Isle, and especially Commissioner Pisano, have worked incredibly hard to put together a Belle Isle 90th Anniversary & Veterans Day Celebration. This event marks the passage of 90 years from our City's initial charter in 1924.

According to the latest information from the City, this event will feature a tent set up near Pine Castle's "Crawford House" where locals can swap stories about old Belle Isle and Pine Castle. There will also be a separate tent where the "Save the Crawford House" group will be kicking off their fundraising drive to move and restore the Crawford House. Come learn more about the Crawford House and the plan to save it!

Additionally, Jane Tracy from the Orlando Public Library will be at the Pine Castle Historical Society booth in the afternoon taking oral histories from local residents. So please encourage your friends and neighbors to stop by and share some of their memories.

There will be a morning parade departing City Hall at 9:00 a.m.  Following the parade, the event will begin at 10:00 a.m. at the Cornerstone campus, located at 5903 Randolph Avenue. Hope to see you there!
