  • Play Plus for Kids
    For busy mom Erin Phelan, owning a children?s play center blends personal and professional pursuits. Because she believes that storytelling and imaginary play develops essential skills, she has made both core foundations of her space. When the Play Plus for Kids owner comes to work, her youngster often tags along with her, zigzagging through the facilities during open-play time and exploring the indoor treehouse or bounce house alongside other inquisitive tots. Phelan's facility, which brims with opportunities for imaginative play, helps parents encourage their little ones to step away from the video-game controllers or tax audit forms in favor of hands-on recreation.

    Riding His Waters equips novice and expert paddleboarders with the equipment and expertise they need to enjoy their time skimming over the waters around Indialantic.

With these tidbits fresh in mind, they quickly set about exploring the surrounding surf on their own, catching waves when the tide is choppy or calmly drifting when the waters are placid.

  • Brevard Farmers Markets/ BFM
    For more than 100 years, the citizens of Melbourneshire have lived in fear of the mighty dragon Gedeon, who fills the skies with fire every night. Many knights have dared to face the beast, and just as many have ended up as so much canned meat for Gedeon's lunches.? Every year on the anniversary of the dragon's hatching, the Melbourneshirefolk hold a grand festival?during which all who prove worthy are welcome to test their mettle against the birthday boy. A combination of a Renaissance Fair, Celtic sporting event, and live-action fantasy novel, the Dragon Festival is a family-friendly, all-ages event. Those who demur from the feats of strength can share beer and wine and take in the banquet of sights, including fire-breathers, stilt-walkers, jugglers, magicians, and real-life jousting. After night falls, a silver screen flickers with some of the most popular dragons on cinema history. Proceeds from the festival benefit the Save Dragon Point Foundation, aimed at restoring and preserving Merritt Island's famous 65-foot dragon sculpture, "Annie."

  • Space Coast Stadium
    Injuries from combat are often more visible than the emotional trauma of war, yet those traumas can be just as deadly. Fortunately, though days may be dark, the compassionate professionals at Hope4Heroes spend their days lighting the beacons that line the path toward mental health. The non-profit organization actively supports military personnel suffering from depression, PTSD, and suicidal thoughts through counseling programs and community outreach. Their most celebrated work comes though their rehabilitative sports programs. The idea behind these programs is simple: the teamwork, camaraderie, and physical activity of sports helps to directly tackle the major symptoms and triggers of depression. In addition to building pride in their on-field performance, players also have the opportunity to play alongside retired MLB and NFL greats during events such baseball tournaments and golf tours. These matches aren't just fun, though; through them, Hope4Heroes also joins forces with local charities to raise funds for wounded vets and their families.

  • Wade Fishing Florida
    Nothing stands between the angler and the water. Not the deck of a boat. Not a dock on the bay. And definitely not a crust of Jell-O. Like a tiger slinking towards its prey, the angler wades nearly silently into the water, draws back his rod, and casts a line. The spanish mackerel lurking just beneath the surface never sees it coming. Knee-deep in the water, the fisherman raises his catch high and poses for a celebratory photo. Another successful trip for Wade Fishing Florida. For the the company's fishing guides, getting rid of the boat makes things a lot easier. Groups wade right into the Indian River Lagoon, increasing stealth, allowing for easier casting, and granting access to fish-laded waters inaccessible via boat. Wade fishing also boasts an environmental benefit—it eliminates fuel burning, wake disturbances, and chantey singing.
