Citrus Classic 5K Run at Legoland

It was the crack of dawn on April 14 inWinter Havenand the “Fresh from Florida” Kids staff was busy setting up a display table featuring some of Florida’s fabulous fresh fruit and vegetables in the parking lot of LEGOLAND Florida. We were invited to attend the new theme park’s 5K race benefiting the Winter Haven Foundation Fund for Women and Children. The race began at an early 7:00am and had a total of 762 participants.

Florida Watermelon Queen Christine Chaloupka joined “Fresh from Florida” at the event, meeting with guests and educating them about the benefits of Florida watermelons. LEGOLAND Florida presented trophies of 12-inch runners made from LEGO bricks. Very cool!

Everyone had a great day!
