ORLANDO, Fla. – In College Park, a stretch of Edgewater Drive will be cordoned off April 30 to make way for a street festival that organizers promise will be fun, creative and filling.

College Park Spring Fest, formally known as Dancing on the Drive, was originally set to take place April 2 but postponed due to the weekend’s weather forecast.

The event, which will sprawl across Edgewater Drive between Smith and Bryn Mawr streets, will now take place from 5-11 p.m. Saturday, April 30.

Some local shops and restaurants along Edgewater Drive will stay open for the event, and food trucks will be parked throughout, organizers said.

Digress Wine and Ivanhoe Park Brewing will set up a “rustic meets urban” wine and beer garden at the festival — constructed with reclaimed wood — offering a spot to whet your palate on a repurposed pallet.

Besides the food, drinks, art installations and child-friendly activities, attendees can enjoy a live music lineup headlined by Switch: Back to the ‘80s and their nostalgic cassette-era covers.

Tickets will be sold at the gate for $15, and early birds can purchase admission online ahead of the event for $10, while children 12 and younger get in free.
