Sunday is a day of firsts in Mills 50. First, local punk-infused wrestling federation Mayhem on Mills returns to action with their first show in a year. And second, this event will go down in a new outdoors event space, Carlotta's Culture Park.

Mayhem on Mills — founded by former Orlandoan Rich Evans (also of Total Punk and Golden Pelicans) along with local wrestlers Teddy Stigma and Dan Drennen — has been on an extended hiatus because of the pandemic, but finally returns.

The scrappy independent wrestling federation is notable both because of appearances from legit area indy talent (Serpentico, Effy, and Treehouse Lee, for instance), but also because of a healthy sense of the surreal — wrestling spilling out onto Mills Avenue, time-traveling during matches, etc.

Carlotta's Culture Park, located at 1000 N. Mills Ave., will be the site for "a series of outdoor concerts, movie screenings, and random events" over the next few months, according to Bungalower. (Bungalower will curate a number of these upcoming events.)

Mayhem on Mills Presents: Weird Science happens at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 21, at Carlotta's Culture Park. Tickets are still on sale.

Safety considerations for this event include required masks and assigned, socially distanced pod seating (standing?) areas.
