This weekend in Lake Wales Florida we are excited to participate in the Pioneer Days. A wonderful event going on since the 1970’s. There is an antique car parade, Civil War reenactments lots of Art and Craft booths. Lots of activities to fill the weekend. http://www.Facebook.com/LakeWalesPioneerDays
Be sure to stroll along the beautiful downtown Lake Wales to grab some more old Florida sites and do a little more shopping in its quaint downtown shops. Or stay the night and do an Old Florida weekend.
We love the chance to see our local friends since this so close to where we had our restaurant for 20 years in Winter Haven. Central Florida is so Beautiful full of old Florida scenery and still the convenience of Legoland!
Make plans to also go to http://www.boktowergardens.org while you are here. It is the highest point in Florida and also a nature preserve with a beautiful Carillon concert a couple of times a day. Take peanuts to feed the squirrels or nibble on yourself. Be sure to check out the history room and also the gift shop.
We look forward to hearing how you like your weekend and share in the comments any festivals you love.
Take good care,
Miriam and Kristi
