Event marks 10th anniversary at Falling Waters State Park

The park’s improvements can be attributed to the dedicated staff that continue to strive to make this state park one of the best, said Sweeney. However, in recent years the local community has become more involved with assisting in preserving and protecting one of the Florida's panhandle hidden treasure.

This year’s event is in memory of Raymond Smoker.

Smoker was a big part of the success of the Legends & Lore Festival.

“This year’s event is dedicated to his memory for all of his hard work and effort in the countless events he played a part in,” Sweeney said. “His love for the simple things in life has inspired us all. We will miss him seeing you here with us.”

Smoker was one of the festival’s most avid supporters.

“He was lost to us this year while working with horses and helping others. He is a great loss to our event and the community as a whole,” said Sweeney.
