A ‘Country Fair’ affair in Fort Meade

Event attendees could help strike up the band, so to speak. The Marching Miners were on hand to help create a little music, not to mention a few dollars that will help them offset the costs of their first ever trip to the state championships this coming weekend at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.


The classic cars gave onlookers a chance to talk about times gone by, and dream about some of the cool rides that were on display outside the museum during its Country Fair celebration last Saturday. Despite threatening skies, the weather held off for the most part as visitors enjoyed entertainment, vendors, a chicken barbecue and more.

There was plenty of toe-tappin' entertainment in the museum gazebo, much to the delight of festival goers.

There was a wide array of vendors with everything from produce to clothes. Here, Fort Meade resident Whitney Little checks out one of the items.

There was a real sweet spot at the museum Saturday, and that would have been the booth of "Happy Hives," a Lake Wales business that was giving out tastes of its homemade honey. Owner Jack Stokes was happy to pass out some of his sugary treats.
