64th Annual Florida Forest Festival (and Free Fish Fry!), at Perry, FL October 26, 2019
Yes, that’s a helicopter in the background of this photo of the two-man lumberjack competition at the 2018 Florida Forest Festival in Perry.
And there’s more! You can expect to see lots of really spectacular logging gear, military vehicles this year as well as eat some gret food. You’ll also be able to climb aboard some really big forestry gear and talk with the folks who operate it.
While the main day, with the biggest exhibits and the world’s largest free fish fry, is on Saturday, the 26th, at the Forest Capital State Park on US19/98, there are other events throughout the week, including a big parade, fireworks, and a beauty pageant.
