Upcoming Community Events in Florida

Pineapple Event

Get Your Pineapple Fix at these Florida Events

When you think of a pineapple, you might think of a tropical setting, a fruit salad, vitamins, and nutrients, or a sweet, tangy taste. But pineapples are also a symbol of friendship, celebrations, warm welcomes, and hospitality. They can be used to unite with loved ones or meet new people. It’s also a great way to bring the community together to fellowship or give back. Pineapple themed events are a great way to come together and celebrate our favorite tropical fruit.

With that in mind—mark your calendars! Check out these upcoming events in Florida that fully embody the spirit of pineapple to connect with the community.
