Had a great time this weekend at the first annual Ragtime Festival and Equestrian Parade in downtown Dade City. It's the first time the city has hosted the event since a similar parade was held last year as part of the Little Everglades Steeplechase.
Sponsored by the City of Dade City Youth Council and the Pioneer Florida Museum & Village, the high-stepping horse parade was followed by an afternoon of live ragtime and blues music, great barbecue and the aweseome dance routines of Sally Blackwood Studios.
Thank you to the City of Dade City Youth Council, the Pioneer Museum and the many volunteers who helped make this event a success. It was truly a great day downtown and we hope the event will be back next year!
Stay tuned also for the next big event at the Pioneer - Les McDowell's Cowboy Days, featuring Matt Stillwell, Les McDowell's Cowboy Poetry, Cowboy Tom's Wild West Show, Cowboy Vern's Rope Tricks, an FFA petting zoo, 1800s authentic cow camp and much more!
