“Spring has sprung…” That is how Mike Farmer starts his article in this month’s edition and we couldn’t agree more! Another winter behind us and a beautiful spring season to look forward to. With that comes several festivals throughout the region and we have them all in our March book. We start out with the Cedar Key Arts Festival on the cover, plus articles and ads on The Florida State Bluegrass Festival, Trenton’s Suwannee Valley Quilt Fest, The Dixie County Fly-in & Cruise-In and, The WOW Event happening in Cedar Key. Don’t forget The Spring Art Festival happening in Suwannee at the end of the month as well. So much to do and we urge you to take advantage of the beautiful spring weather and attend one, if not all, of these fun events.
We are excited to jump into spring with 40 pages, our biggest book yet! In addition to all the festivals we just listed we have some great articles and information about the entire region. Articles from Toni Collins include “Putting America to Work” and the WPA impact in the area during the 1930s. She also sends along some fun “Florida Facts” about our great state. Jeff Carey has another informative article about “flying the skies” in the area and includes some dynamite pictures. We were given permission to reprint a very interesting article from the University of Florida’s Explore magazine. “Laser Legacy” talks about how the university is using 3-D visualization of sea level rise in Florida communities, including Cedar Key. We also have our usual charter captains back in, Mike Farmer and Brian Smith, giving us the “ins and outs” for good fishing in the area. Finally our faithful advertisers, old and new, who continue to support our little magazine. Please take the time to visit them while in the area. These folks work hard every day to make this beautiful area welcoming and inviting for all who visit.
Enjoy spring and enjoy our book.
