It’s that time of year again, for locals to get in touch with their roots and for visitors to learn about the heritage and history of DeSoto County at Pioneer Day. It will be celebrated this Saturday at Veterans Park, west of Arcadia next to the Peace River, and promises to be a day filled with fun, entertainment, learning, and fine food. And we’ve ordered the perfect weather for the day as well.
The origin of this great day took place in 2005, and the first gathering was in downtown Arcadia, at the Tree of Knowledge Park. Within two years, it had outgrown itself and was moved to McSwain Park. Sure enough, the crowds, vendors, craftsmen, entertainers, and demonstrators kept growing until it had to be relocated in 2010, to its current site, Veterans Park.
