Billy Bowlegs Festival Cancelled

Jolly Rogers

In order to generate “local excitement” [sell stuff] the chamber of commerce was once again hoping to annoy people with the Billy Bowlegs Festival.

After moving the event from the first weekend in June to Friday, August 31st they have decided they can’t hold the festival under current conditions. I’m a bit shocked that they have acted like adults instead of like Trump or DeSantis, but credit where credit is due.
