Highlands Hammock State Park and the Friends of Highlands Hammock will host the 28th annual Civilian Conservation Corps Festival from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

The park’s signature event, the CCC Festival has evolved into a celebration of history, nature, art, and music. Presentations on the CCC, wildlife, local history, heritage crafts, and Florida folk art are all planned. Local bluegrass band Back Porch Revival will set a toe-tapping pace as vendors finish setup. Park Manager Steven Dale will then officially open the festival at 10 a.m. with a welcome and the unveiling of Mountain Dan’s black bear and Florida panther chainsaw carvings in the picnic area.
