Weekend Top 6 Picks for April 15th and 16th.

Saturday April 15, 2017
9am to 1pm. Free. Trump Tax March/Protest Orlando. Lake Eola Park, Downtown Orlando, Florida Orlando, Florida 32801. "During the campaign, Trump repeatedly promised to release his returns. However, White House senior adviser Kelly Anne Conway said on Sunday that he no longer planned to do so because “people don’t care.”
That inspired the calls for a protest on April 15, which would normally be tax day, but because it falls on a Saturday ― and since Emancipation Day follows ― taxes will actually be due on April 18 this year."
Gather to spread love and prove that Orlando does not tolerate hate!
Donate so we can afford permits, and police presence/road barricades/etc to make sure this is a safe event!

2pm to 3:30pm Free. From the Queen of Plastics to the King of Rock. Orlando Public Library, 101 E Central Blvd, Orlando, FL 32801. Join us at the Orlando Public Library to hear Bob Kealing discuss his fascinating book projects. Kealing’s research and writing has inspired Orlando’s Jack Kerouac Project, restored the legacy of Tupperware pioneer Brownie Wise, and revealed pioneering country rocker Gram Parsons’ Winter Haven roots. Now, in Kealing’s new book, Elvis Ignited: The Rise of an Icon in Florida, he uncovers the Sunshine State’s crucial role in Elvis Presley’s life and musical career. Join us for a fascinating first-hand look at how a skilled and dedicated journalist discovered little-known but important stories from Central Florida’s pop-culture past.
Bob Kealing is an Edward R. Murrow and four-time Emmy award-winning broadcast journalist at WESH-TV who is also a historian of Florida’s popular culture. He has appeared on national programs such as Dateline NBC, the Today Show, and CBS This Morning and published articles in magazines and newspapers across the country.

8pm to Midnight. Free. Bungalower Bazaar powered by Cooper's Craft. 514 Virginia Dr, Orlando, FL 32803.  Bungalower and Cooper's Craft have joined forces to bring you a night filled with Orlando's best makers, in a new event space in Ivanhoe Village, run by our friends at FACTUR.
