The Forest Capital State Park in Perry Florida has one of the most beautiful stages anywhere in bluegrass. Set in a lovely park with reconstructed cracker buildings and a museum, The Florida State Bluegrass Festival (April 5, 6 and 7) is sponsored by the Taylor County Chamber of Commerce. In addition to the music, Saturday will feature a Miss Moon Pie contest as well as one of our favorite features, not found at any other event we attend. The Chili Cook-Off is a contest which you have the power to influence. You can register to be a taster/voter for $5.00, entitling you to taste a couple of dozen different versions of the an American staple: Chili. Tasty and fun!
