FROM THE FAMOUS FOX: EVENTS GALORE THIS WEEKEND

Hi friends! Reef the fox here with another weekly edition of “Reef’s Report.” Halloween is coming up and the human mother bought us costumes. Yes, ridiculous, I know. Who has ever heard of a fox in a costume? I mean I obviously look adorable in it but that’s beside the point. I need to keep up my cool teenage fox persona and a costume just really puts a damper on all of that. I am sure my mother will be submitting a photo of me in costume for next week’s paper so stay tuned for that embarrassment. There are some fun things going on this week so let’s get to it.

The Islamorada Farmers Market is back for season two starting this weekend. The Farmers Market is located at Island Home & Garden, 88720 Overseas Highway, every Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for fresh local produce, artisan breads, local honey, fresh baked goods, delectable cheeses, nuts and dried fruits and much more. For the first two weeks, they are adding some extra fun with a Pumpkin Patch, complete with pumpkins available for purchase and great photo ops. Come early with the entire family for free mini pumpkins to decorate on site, while supplies last. I love pumpkins. I didn’t even know what a pumpkin was until mom brought some home for us and I went wild. I hope she takes me down so I can get a free mini pumpkin.

Two of our dolphin neighbors are having a birthday party this Sunday, Oct. 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Dolphins Plus Marine Mamma Responder in Key Largo. Join Jett, Tug and the rest of the DPMMR family for a free open house and dolphin birthday party.

Jett & Tug are turning 5 years old this fall and they are celebrating by opening their doors to the public for an exciting birthday bash. Free activities include: live dolphin demonstrations, behind the scenes tours, dolphin research demonstrations, interactive education booths, kids activities and more. 

Admission is free. For more on the event, visit dpmmr.org/open-house
As always, you can find out more about my fox family at pawsitivebeginnings.org and if you have any fox-related questions you can email me directly at [email protected] I would LOVE to see your pet’s costumes so send me some photos. Reef, over and out.
