If you know me at all, you know I’m not much of a shopper. I’m a HUNTer. I know I want a flowered dress, capped sleeves, size (none-ya), below-the-knee, on sale…. OH, and it has to be purchased at a store that’s easy to get in and out of. (I know. I’m picky.)
Good for me the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores mall is having their 17th Annual Spring Festival on Saturday, April 12th where I can park easily, get in and out easily, and hunt for that perfect Easter dress (or shoes, and…).
I’m especially excited that two of my favorite bunnies in the whole world, Mayor Clayton and Ms. Merry from Give Kids the World Village (GKTW) will be visiting at the Festival and superheroes from Heroes Alliance. The center is selling raffle tickets for a chance to win more than $6,000 in prizes including attraction tickets, hotels stays, store gifts and gift cards. One hundred percent of raffle ticket sales benefit Give Kids the World. (Thank you LBVFS!)
We’re huge GKTW supporters (you can read about one of our adventures here).
In addition, there will be a farmers market, crafts, face painting, balloon sculpting, games and an awesome sidewalk sale.
The Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores mall boasts 50 outlet shops including:
- the area’s only Old Navy outlet store
- U.S. Polo Assn.
- Lindt Chocolate,
- Nike, OshKosh B’Gosh
- Tommy Hilfiger Stores
- G by GUESS
- Calvin Klein
- Famous Footwear Outlet
- Rack Room Shoes
- and many more including one of my favorites:
The Ann Taylor Loft store.
