TAVARES—Lake County’s Wings & Wildflowers Festival took home two first-place awards during the Florida Festivals & Events Association (FFEA) Convention & Tradeshow in Orlando this week.
The Lake County Economic Development & Tourism Division and Lake County Communications Department accepted the SUNsational awards for both photography and its festival program. Last year, the festival nabbed the top spot for its social media pages.
“We are thrilled that once again, our in-house marketing work promoting Lake County and the growing Wings & Wildflowers Festival has been recognized by our peers,” said Robert Chandler, Lake County Economic Growth Director.
The 5th Annual Wings & Wildflowers Festival, to be held Oct. 14-16 at Leesburg’s Venetian Gardens, shines a spotlight on Lake County’s growing reputation as Florida’s premier birding destination. The goal of the festival is to increase awareness and appreciation of Lake County’s ecotourism, natural resources and quality of life.
