Citrus County Parks & Rec unveils Virtual Programs
There is a lot going on this summer and fall with Citrus County Parks and Recreation. The Division just wrapped up several successful weeks of online art camp for middle school students and it occurred to staff that the sky is the limit with virtual programming.
“We had a blast with our Virtual Camp Color Rush for budding artists this summer,” said Recreation Program Specialist Andrea Cuccaro. “And we thought, we can do a lot more with this forum, so we are!”
Upcoming new programming includes Virtual Trivia Nights and Virtual Open Mic Nights. “We hosted live online trivia as part of our camps for kids this summer, and had tons of fun, and we want to offer this program for the greater community. We know we have some trivia fanatics out there!” she added.
Virtual Trivia Nights will be hosted on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month at 6:30 pm excluding holidays.

“Our virtual Open Mic Night is an extension of our live Open Mic Night on the last Wednesday of every month at Central Ridge Community Center,” said Manny Coimbre, Sports and Events Coordinator of the Division.
“We’re keeping the event on the final Wednesday of the month and we’ve got an emcee to host performers over video chat for an audience who want to hear live music from local talent in Citrus County, and honestly, the performers are really great!” he added. Virtual Open Mic Night will be hosted on the final Wednesday of each month between 6:30 pm and 9:30 pm.
