CARYVILLE - The Worm Fiddlin’ Festival will return to Caryville this Saturday.

Members of Caryville Town Council encourage the community to come out for the town’s signature event, which they hope to build as one of the “can’t miss” festivals of the Florida Panhandle.

The event will kick off at 10 a.m. at Caryville Town Hall with a variety of vendors and activities for all ages available. The Worm Fiddling Contest will be the highlight of the event with prizes for contest winners.

For those not familiar with “worm fiddling,” the practice dates back to the 1800s after it was discovered fiddling was an easier method of acquiring fishing bait than attempting to gather worms by digging in the ground. It gets its name from the motion made to produce vibrations to attract ground worms.
