On this weekend the island will have experts on the islands rich history from the 1800′s to the present time. If you are a lighthouse enthusiast we have one that was built in 1858 and will be open for visitors to view the spiral staircase and to ask questions of our Lighthouse Keeper re-enactor. If nature is your interest, we will have experts on migratory and shorebirds, gopher tortoises and sea turtles. We will also have experts on the native plants found on Egmont Key.
We will have Civil War re-enactors, both Union and Confederate with uniforms and equipment from that time. Also, there will be people knowledgeable on the part that the island played in the Spanish American War in 1898.
Other activities include a Silent Auction, kids games, local artists, music, souvenirs, self guided walking tours and the best hotdogs on the island!
