The City Un-Beautiful

January 31, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Orlando Has History with Don Price

The City Un-Beautiful

Join us on Thursday, January 31st at Ten 10 Brewing Company for the first viewing of this never-before-seen footage of, “The City Un-Beautiful”. This 23-minute documentary was made in 1962 and takes a look at some of the not-so-beautiful things that were happening in the Parramore part of Orlando. Watch the film with us, then we’ll engage in some #conversationsthatmatter. Space is limited. Registration is required for entry.

Who is Don Price?

After 31 years working for the City of Orlando, Don Price, the Sexton of the Greenwood Cemetery, has retired. If you have ever met Don or been on one of his Cemetery tours, then you know that he is a man with stories. He knows the history of every building, every landmark, every street name, every Orlando mayor, and every everything else that you can name.

Fortunately for us, Don wants to continue to share his stories – and believe me – you want to hear them! Mosquito County Tours is introducing a new special event series for 2019 called, Orlando Has History with Don Price. We will be hosting special events all year long where you can come and hear Don and his incredible stories. The City Un-Beautiful is our first of many events this year and is done in collaboration with Orlando Together. As Don was packing up his office, he discovered an old reel-to-reel film that was collecting dust on a shelf. It was headed for the garbage can, but Don decided to save it and have it transferred to a DVD so it could be viewed. Having no idea what was on the film, Don waited with bated breath to see what gem of Orlando History may be found on this lost footage. Come see it with us for the first time on January 31st.

Space is limited. Registration is required.
