Come to the Santa Fe Trail Fest Sunday. The event will include a hot dog meal, entertainment by Maurice Pritz and Friends, karaoke, hayrack rides, children’s games, cakewalk, and a medallion hunt with a prize. This year the festival will be downtown instead of the ball diamond. For those coming from out-of-town, the roads south and west of Tampa are now open — not perfect, but open.

The playground equipment in the park has been painted by volunteer work from Larry and Annette Sneary.
