Now You Know: Big weekend in Goodland, more
The 11th Annual Harbor Arts & Music Festival is slated for this weekend. The event will be from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, March 11 and 12 at MarGood Harbor Park, 321 Pear Tree Avenue, in Goodland.
The juried fine-art event, produced by the Goodland Civic Association (501[c]3), along with Collier County Parks and Recreation, showcases world class artists working in a full array of media: glass-blowing, metalwork, painting, photography, clothing, jewelry, woodwork, hand-bound journals, ceramics, and mixed media.
Florida Fiddler & Mangrove Music Studio founder JRobert has gathered over a dozen musicians and songwriters to perform live from the MarGood sound stage overlooking the waterfront venue. The festival is free and there’s plenty of seating.
Volunteer golf cart shuttle drivers are happy to ferry folks around the Village to and from the event.
MarGood Harbor Park has great historic and environmental significance; the property was purchased by Collier County with Florida Forever funds in 2005. Today, native landscaping and lovely walkways wrap around a picturesque harbor. The park also features a museum/exhibition hall, two open-air pavilions, and a canoe/kayak launch and plenty of parking.

Italian American Society meets Roberto Angotti
The executive board and their spouses made a trip up to the Naples Italian American Foundation club in North Naples (niafounation.org) to see Roberto Angotti who presented his film, “Italian American Baseball Family.” It shows so how Italian immigrants, with no benefit of the English language when coming to America, integrated by playing baseball.
Angotti's documentary won the Russo Brothers Italian American Film Forum Award at the NIAF 42nd Anniversary Gala in Washington, D.C.
