Great American BBQ

 
To keep the patriotism going strong, we are hosting a Great American BBQ at SunWest Park in Hudson on Saturday, November 16th.
 
The Great American BBQ costs $5 to enter, but with that ticket, guests will have over 25 BBQ options from the best local food trucks and restaurants, live bands including a Justin Timberlake Tribute Concert from 4:30-6:00 PM, access to volleyball and corn hole games, a rib eating competition, and more!
 
If you think you have what it takes to beat Man vs. Food, then join us for the Rib Eating Competition. The contest will challenge BBQ-loving enthusiasts to eat a full rack of ribs as fast as possible. The winner will receive a grand prize and a championship belt! ?
 
The $5 ticket entrance fee benefits the Hudson Elementary School. Without the support from the event, the school might not be able to stay open, so each ticket purchase helps the local Hudson families and students. Come out and enjoy a day of fun for the whole family!
 

Peace, Love, & Funk Festival ft. Bizarre Bazaar

 
You made it through the two holidays of the year so now it's time to have fun! The Peace, Love & Funk Festival is a day where adults can be a kid again. We are encouraging individuals to get their groove on, dance, and participate in flow art! Spin poi, hula hoop, or just get jiggy with it while burning off those unwanted Thanksgiving leftover calories.
 
The Peace, Love & Funk Festival's mission is to support our community with love and music, and with local acts like George Pennington III, Shevonne and the Force, and The Black Honkeys you'll be sure to have the time of your life.
 
Along with the festival, there will also be a Bizarre Bazaar market featuring 30+ local vendors specializing in a variety of rare items and oddities. 
 

Upcoming Simply Parties

 
If you think our Simply Events are fun, just wait until you see our Simply Parties! Simply Parties is a new branch of Simply Events. We have several upcoming Simply Parties at various Westfield Malls in November.
 
Friendsgiving
Saturday, November 16 | 7:00-11:00 PM
The hit television show, Friends, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and celebrating it, we are hosting a Friendsgiving party of our own at Westfield Brandon on Saturday, November 16th. Bring your friends and make memories that will last forever with one-of-a-kind photo ops, games, DIYs, enjoy fall-inspired drink specials, and of course, meet DJ Jamie Ferreira and Brian Fink as they liven up the night with live music and Friends-themed games for your chance to win Westfield gift cards!
 
Pet Photos
Sunday, November 17 | 6:30-8:00 PM
As a pet mom myself, there's nothing cuter than getting a pic of your pet with Saint Nick himself (if you can get them to sit still). We will be hosting Pet Photos with Santa Claus on Sunday, November 17th, at Westfield Countryside, Citrus Park, and Brandon from 6:30-8:00 PM.
 
Sensory Santa
Westfield Countryside | Saturday, November 23 | 8:00-9:30 AM
Westfield Brandon | Sunday, November 24 | 9:00-10:30 AM
We are thrilled to be hosting a Sensory Santa experience at both Westfield Countryside on November 23rd, and Westfield Brandon on November 24th. Sensory Santa gives families of children with special needs a chance to feel normal around the holiday season. The events will incorporate lower lighting and volume for a less stressful experience.
