The Winn-Dixie in Mandarin had special events all around on Thursday. Mr. Peanut came to visit, arriving in the Peanut-Mobile. A vendor was cooking sausages, handing them out free to customers (bun included).

As all this commenced outside on the breezeway, Jacksonville musician Oleta Riggs played tunes inside the store. All this created a very nice holiday spirit for shoppers.

Oleta is active in Jacksonville’s music community, playing at Open Mics and at restaurants like Tijuana Flats and special events like the Christmas Festival.

Hat tip to Winn-Dixie for providing opportunities for indie Florida musicians, and for adding those special touches to the busy holiday shopping season. Hat tip to Oleta for some lovely tunes.
