Spring is in the air, and in Mount Dora, that can only mean festival fever.
The Mount Dora Spring Festival is an annual rite of spring. The free event is scheduled from 9am-5pm Saturday, March 16, and Sunday, March 17, throughout the downtown streets.
Downtown will come alive with an eclectic display of fine arts and fun crafts from more than 250 exhibitors, according to an announcement for the event.
The festival, formerly known as the Mount Dora Spring Collectibles, Crafts and Antiques Show, is in its 22nd year and draws thousands of visitors.
