The Ocala Polo Club’s summer series of night games, which runs through the end of the month, offered opportunities on July 30th for field-side tailgating and plenty of action with players and ponies on the course and spectators taking to the field to stomp divots.

Princess Belle, from Beauty and the Beast, was truly the belle of the ball on August 6th as guests, many in costume, enjoyed a day of festivities that showcased the Finding Beauty exhibit. The overflow crowd also heard photographer Steven Benson talk about his Invented Observations exhibition.
