Thousands visit Downtown High Springs
HIGH SPRINGS, Fla. -- The 40th Annual Pioneer days brought Alachua County residents together to celebrate the town's history.
Each year the High Spring's Chamber of Commerce organizes the event that attracts about 12,000 people.
Jamie Burrow, an Alachua County mom, said her children had so much fun last year that she knew she couldn't miss out on this year's event.
"Its fun there's a lot of local vendors. There's a bunch of good food, good music and it's a gorgeous day. So it's nice to come hangout out with the kids and they can run around in the grassy area, it's fun."
"Her children said their favorite part of the festival is the bounce house and face painting booth."
The festival wasn't just fun for kids- with more than 100 vendors selling crafts and food, people of all ages enjoyed the day.
To keep the historic feel, antique costumes, music and the High Springs Museum brought an early 1900s feel to the festival.
