Arnold Day is a celebration of a figure that spans many generations and platforms. We drink, we eat, and we hang out – all in the presence of the great Arnold Schwarzenegger. Expect Arnold quotes, costumes and of course birthday cakes. A selected set of Arnold classics will be showing on the big screen with audio in procession all day long. Worried your favorite Arnold movie won’t make the cut? Relax, man… because two other TVs at Lazy Moon will be looping other Arnold favorites all day long.
It was a simple combination: Two Arnold Fans, a 19-inch TV, a VCR (that’s right, a VCR) and the greatest pizza and beer establishment in Orlando… nay the world.
Scene: Lazy Moon, Orlando. Saturday, July 30, 2005.
Lazy Moon customers and employees came and went as two weekend warriors watched Arnold one-line the hell out of some movies. By the end of the day, a good seven films were screened, shouted at and quoted. At an average of two pitchers per film, it’s a wonder these two even remembered their first Arnold Day, but they did. And a tradition was born.
Each year, on the weekend of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s birthday, a celebration is held. Through the help of Lazy Moon’s gracious proprietors, Arnold Day has grown from a two-man tradition to a staple in the Orlando area.
Arnold Day is practically a holiday in the Central Florida community. Hundreds of people travel tens of miles to partake in this day-long celebration. Banks close early, schools shut down and corporations seize to operate. Yep. It’s a big deal. Even The Terminator himself has been showing up over the past few years. You doubt? Just checkout our Gallery.
For the ninth year in a row, Arnold Day continues to honor one of the most impressive human beings to ever roam this great earth. So come join us and show your appreciation. You owe it to the Governator. We all do.
