Mango Festival hits Lake Worth this weekend

LAKE WORTH — The 2nd Annual International Mango Festival is scheduled to be held Saturday at the Cultural Plaza.

The event is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The festival has been held in Miami and West Palm Beach in previous years.

“There are so many mango trees in people’s yards and so many mangos dropping from them,” Patti Sheldon, one of the event’s organizers, told The Palm Beach Post last year. “I thought it would be great to hold the festival in Lake Worth so we can do something about it and collect the mangos and give them to people.”
