Weekend Top 6 Picks for August 10 and 11, 2019

Saturday August 10, 2019
10am to 2pm. Free. The History Center’s Fabulous Floridiana Auction. Orange County Regional History Center 65 E Central Blvd, Orlando, Florida 32801. Take Home a Piece of Central Florida's Past!
As we get ready for our big upcoming renovations, we’ve found a stash of treasures in the museum’s hidden corners. From gargantuan gators to magical mermaids, we got just the right amazing object to bring a true touch of Florida and fabulous fun to your home or office!

We’re talking about everything from massive manatees to a compact King Kong—even the pretend claw of a giant sloth, and it’s pretty scary. In short, a plethora of one-of-a-kind treasures, ranging in size from 6 inches to more than 6 feet, that spell out the wild, wacky, and wonderful state we’re in.
The Fabulous Floridiana live auction, will be led by a professional auctioneer. Proceeds benefit History Center programs. The museum will offer free admission, and you can examine our treasures starting at 10 a.m

Please note that most of these props or models go back to the museum’s opening almost 20 years ago; they must be sold “as is,” so you’ll want to check them out before bidding.
