Scottish Highland Games opens tonight with a few events like a whisky tasting, but the main events, like the sheep dog demonstrations, the caber toss (burly men flinging telephone poles around like they were pretzel sticks) and folk and highland dancing will be going on for the rest of the weekend (we're told we may have an opportunity to try haggis, and we use the word 'opportunity' generously).
Next up the Orlando Science Center presents Otronicon, it's four-day expo of all kinds of interactive technology including workshops and experiences in medical technology, military tech and Rock Band Experience, with real concert lights and sounds (I'll be squirreled away in the Reboot Lounge myself, playing the video games that were popular when I was a kid, not quite a hundred years ago but when the word "joystick" was still in use and humorous.
Finally when I saw the photographs of Atelier: The Work of Edson Campos online I very much wanted to include the exhibition on the list and you can see why in the image below. Strangely ethereal and surreal but with a vivacity and almost hyper-liveliness, I'm looking forward to seeing this one myself as well. When I went to the Mount Dora Center for the Arts website (the link above) just prior to posting this it was momentarily down; just in case there are technical difficulties, this link might work a bit better; if not, the number for the Center is (352) 383-0880. There's a reception tonight from 6-8pm and tonight is also the Mount Dora Arts stroll, a free event - you can pick up maps with participating locations in various spots in downtown Mount Dora. and for more information on the exhibit check out the Orlando Sentinel write-up here.
