Caches, Critters and Cars at Falling Waters State Park Oct. 11

September 18, 2014

 The Washington County Tourist Development Council is hosting Caches, Critters and Cars at Falling Waters State Park on Oct. 11, 2014 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Come experience an eclectic mix of treasure hunting, wild animals, antique campers & cars and much more. Enjoy all of this in the backdrop of one of the Florida Panhandle’s most beautiful places.

This event will be the official kick-off of the Washington County Heritage GeoTrail. Geocaching is an adult version of hide & go seek were you use satellites by way of a GPS unit or your smartphone to find caches hidden throughout historical Washington County. This new trail will be great fun for the entire family as you go explore the county’s historic sites and ultimately win a set of trackables for your efforts.

If you’re an animal lover then Falling Waters is the place to be on October 11th. There is everything: albino deer, owls, gators, bunnies, snakes and goats that will be on display along with other animals.

During the event, you’ll be able to see firsthand how cars, trucks and campers were made long ago by taking a tram to the campgrounds and leisurely exploring the antique campers and cars and trucks open house. There will be demonstrators sharing the unique history of the area including Creek Indians, turpentining of the longleaf pine and much more.

There will be many artists such as a blacksmith, chainsaw wood carver, flint knappers with a variety of homemade crafts, artwork & jewelry for sale. All crafts at the event will be made locally in the USA!

Plenty of great food & drinks and good old fashion fun for the whole family and while at the park enjoy the natural wonders that make Falling Waters so unique – the 73 ft. waterfall and sinkholes.
