Orlando’s Eve: A roaring 20’s party and immersive experience

Comments: 0

Orlando’s Eve is an immersive adventure through the historic streets of Downtown Orlando, highlighted by an interactive theater experience that culminates in a roaring 1920’s party at a secret speakeasy.

The evening features live music, dinner and drinks, as well as burlesque and vaudeville performances. Live music and dancing with Brown Bag Brass Band, and very special performance by Tymisha Harris (from award winning Josephine) will round out the evening. Orlando’s Eve interactive performances are being directed by Tim Williams of Orlando Shakes.

The evening begins at the Downtown Orange County Regional History Center where you will pick up clues and follow to historic locations around downtown. This is a great opportunity to explore a little of Orlando’s History before the adventure starts…

After the History Center, the immersive journey begins as you set off to arrive at different locations around Downtown, meeting historical figures from Orlando’s past along the way. Here you will interact with them, and collect clues that will eventually lead you to the ‘secret speakeasy party’. Gather up all of the clues, figure out the location and speakeasy password, and get inside for a fun-filled roaring 20’s party featuring a dinner buffet, delicious cocktails, live music and more.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Avrio Foundation. The Avrio Foundation supports projects relating to downtown Orlando beautification, activation, connectivity, and place-making.

On Watermark’s anniversary, founder Tom Dyer reflects on two transforming decades

By : Tom Dyer
Comments: 0

When I started Watermark back in 1994, my goal was to share—and encourage—the richness of the local LGBT experience. Looking back, I see now that I had only the slightest idea what that meant.

In the last 20 years, Watermark has been my entrée to unimagined people and experiences—and I hope yours, too. We’ve stood up to discrimination in its ugliest forms, been patient as friends and representatives evolved, and discovered a real—almost cocky—pride in our uniqueness. And we’ve laughed with, and been inspired by, legends of this unique time in history.
