**CANCELLED***3RD ANNUAL WINDERMERE ST. PATRICK’S DAY CELEBRATION
Due to concerns related to COVID-19 “Corona Virus,” Town Staff has made the decision to cancel Saturday’s event.
The health and safety of our community and residents is our foremost concern. We have not decided if this event will be rescheduled for later in the year. More information will be shared as it becomes available.
Thank you to everyone who was planning to attend and help make the event a success!
We appreciate your understanding.
Event is from 4-8pm and free for all. We only charge for tickets to buy beers and bands for kids to have unlimited bounce house times and games.
Every St. Patrick’s Day people tend to flock to Irish Pubs. As you know it gets crowded, seating is limited and most times they are not really kid friendly. This event is different. We have a large open air event space, we encourage people to bring their own tables, chairs etc. We have local craft beer vendors and plenty of beer tents so there aren’t any long lines. We have bounce houses, games and face painters for the kids so the parents can enjoy live music and some refreshments. We also have several food trucks offering a variety of options as well. At 7pm we have a few words from our Chief and Town Manager to inform people about the Windermere Police Department Foundation and have Officer German’s Father Tim German do a toast to his late son.
On March 22nd, 2014, The Town of Windermere Family lost a son, a brother, and a hero when Officer Robert “Robbie” German was killed in the line of duty. The entire community came together during this tragic time and truly demonstrated why the Town of Windermere and Central Florida is such a great place to work, live, and raise a family. From the various memorials, blue ribbon campaigns, and outpouring of support, the Town came together and honored our fallen hero.
The Windermere Police Department Foundation, Inc. was established and gained 501C(3) in the wake of this tragedy. Our mission is to support, encourage, and benefit the citizens served by the Windermere Police Department, the employees and families of the Windermere Police Department, and the Central Florida community. The Foundation will also seek innovative ways to improve the quality of life of the citizens served by the Windermere Police Department and the Central Florida community, through advancements in safety and crime reduction, all with the goal of enhancing services within the area.
