Wakulla 4-H is Throwing a Birthday Party for Wakulla County on March 13th!
A Free Street Party
On Friday, March 13, 2020, 4-H invites everyone to celebrate Wakulla County’s 177th birthday at a street party.
To recognize Wakulla’s history, 4-H members asked the Board of County Commissioners to declare March 8 -14, 2019 Wakulla Wonderful Week.
Join Community Partners to Celebrate
Many hands make light work. This event is possible through the work of community partners. The 4-H members thank all the many individuals and organizations who helped to make this event happen.
During the event, guests will enjoy live music by Coon Bottom Creek band and performances by local school jazz ensembles. Attendees can stroll along a 40 foot long history timeline walk and enjoy food trucks. Between music sets, a historical storytelling performance will be featured. Throughout the night, there will be opportunities to tour the Old County Jail and Old Courthouse.
The Fun Happens on High Road Starting at 5:45 pm
From 5:15 to 10 PM, High Road will be closed to traffic. The party will begin at 5:45 pm. The festivities kick off with a jazz ensemble performance on the Old Courthouse lawn at 23 High Road. A brief program including a reading of the Wakulla Wonderful Week Proclamation will be held on the courthouse steps at 6:20 pm.
The county has a rich and extensive history dating back 12,000+ years! Wakulla County was formed on March 11, 1843 by an act of the Florida Legislature as the 23rd county of Florida. This opportunity to celebrate our history offers a chance for us to come together to celebrate that history as a community.
