Having the Fourth of July off made it feel like this week had two Mondays, didn’t it? On the other hand, you could argue that it also had two Fridays, so perhaps it all evens out. Anyway, it’s now officially the weekend and as usual, Brevard County has a lot of events and activities to offer. There’s the farmers markets, the free kids movies and summer nights at Brevard Zoo, as well as all the things to do we’ve listed below.
Oh, and a special shout out to Famous Faces & Funnies and Get Your Fun On, a couple of Brevard small businesses that have combined forces to create an EPIC comics, toys, pop culture and gaming store! The grand opening event is happening all weekend long at 3030 W. New Haven Ave. in West Melbourne. Lots of stuff on sale and many freebies too, so check ’em out! Support local business! (See the flier here.)
