BARTOW – It’s at a different time but it’s in the same place, same times, familiar and educational though you may not know it.

It’s the Cracker Storytelling Festival. Usually held near Halloween so it’s taken on that theme but in its 29th year the festival at Homeland Heritage Park is planned Dec. 6-9 (Wednesday through Saturday) postponed because of Irma. The hurricane which blew through Polk County in early September claimed the park as one of its victims as it was closed for weeks because of the deluge of water that flooded it. However, weeks later the same group of storytellers is coming and so is the ever-popular whip cracking contest that will be held on Saturday.
