If you have been following us on our Facebook page or Twitter account you will have heard that we have received our “official” welcome email from the coordinator of the Florida Folk Festival this year. Since, “The festival has recently been recognized by the Southeast Tourism Society as a “Top 20 Event” in the southeastern United States for 2015” we are very excited to be included. We keep checking their website to see if we have been added under the “highlights” section but it may take a week or so for us to be added.

We are going ahead with our plans to purchase a replica of the 1960/61 Holiday House travel trailer.
