Homosassa Arts and Crafts Seafood Festival
In 1987 the Homosassa Civic Club, who had sponsored
an art festival in the town since 1975, merged their efforts with
the Organized Fishermen of Florida who brought an abundance of
fresh seafood -- mullet, blue crabs, and stone crabs -- to be
served at the Arts & Crafts Fair in Homossasa.
Project documentation consists of thirty 8 x 10
photos, many historic photos of the early Homossasa area, as well
as a 13-page written report on the area's history, as well as
copies of newspaper clippings and flyers.
