Spring has Sprung, Azalea Festival in Palatka Mar 2 – 3, 2019

Folks the weather really looks like Spring, Low 80’s for this upcoming weekend in Palatka at the Florida Azalea Festival. We had such a good time last year and we are really looking forward to returning this year.

The Festival is from 10 AM to 5 PM Saturday and Sunday, March 2 and 3, 2019 in downtown Palatka, which is just 1 hour south of Jacksonville, 40 Mins from Orange Park and 45 minutes from St. Augustine so this would be a really great little trip for everyone to check out all the Vendors.  There is Music all day as well as a number of Food Trucks, Yummmm

JaxWhirligigs will be in Booth 311 which is at the corner of 4th Street and St. Johns Avenue, so please stop by and say Hi.  We have already heard from a number of folks that plan on being there and we are really excited about this weekend.

See you this Weekend,
Bob & Selene

Later this Month we will be in Lake City for the Olustee Battle Festival, then in March, Palatka for the Florida Azalea Festival, Lawtey for their Spring Festival and followed by St. Augustine’s Epic Flower and Garden Festival.

In April we will be in Riverside, Lake City again and Bostwick, so we will be getting around over the next 3 months and we are really looking forward to seeing all of the folks we only get to see once a year in the upcoming months 🙂
