Folks got their fill of fish and festivities at the Pioneer Florida Museum’s first Mullet & Music Festival on Nov. 12.
The event began at 10 a.m., and continued until 4 p.m.
It featured fried mullet and smoked mullet dinners, musical entertainment and assorted activities, including a smoked mullet competition, a mullet head competition and mullet toss.
For $10, diners could enjoy a plate of fish, grits, greens and hushpuppies.
For those not particularly fond of fish, festivalgoers could purchase hamburgers, hot dogs and French fries.
There was a beer and wine garden, too.
Admission to the event was included in the admission charge to the museum and village, which features exhibits and artifacts from the pioneer era.
The Pioneer Florida Museum and Village, at 15602 Pioneer Museum Road in Dade City, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving Florida’s pioneer heritage.
