Happy Valentine’s Day! Remember to spoil that special someone. Regardless of your taste or budget, Baldwin Park has something for everyone. Looking for something quick to eat? Subway or Five Guys both have great food. Want something a little romantic? Make reservations at Seito Sushi, Jack’s Steakhouse, Chi Pan Asian, Colibri or La Bella Luna. Top off your evening with a glass of wine at Uptown Park Wine Bar or WineStyles. Craving something sweet? Farris and Foster’s for some chocolate or Delish for some frozen yogurt can end your evening. Whatever you decide to do, enjoy!
Saturday, Feb. 9 the Orlando Chili Cookoff will be held from noon to 6 p.m. at Orlando Festival Park right outside of Baldwin Park.

The Kid’s Zone will also feature interactive DJ Renee Adams, who entertains the whole crowd with dancing, singing, games, and skits, and The Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens will showcase some of its animals.
