Cane Boil and Fiddle Fest
GAINESVILLE - Have you ever wondered what life was like in the mid to late 1800's in North Central Florida?
Fiddlers entertained guests at the Morning side Nature Center for the annual Cane Boil and Fiddle Fest.
It was a City of Gainesville event where residents got the chance to experience sugar cane boiling, spinning sheep wool, and participate in a fiddle contest.
City workers say the event was meant to educate residents about life in the 1800's.
"I hope they take some syrup away if possible, because it's really great especially on a home made buttermilk biscuit, but also some enjoyment and education about what was life like in North Central Florida," Organizer Sally Wazny said.
City workers say they expect more people next year.
