The dinner was held at the Silver Springs attraction and included local elected officials, business people and supporters of both Rainbow and Silver springs. The Marion County Springs Festival was held Saturday at the Rainbow Springs State Park.

The Rainbow Springs is a first-magnitude artesian spring and pumps 490 million gallons of water daily into the Rainbow River, which empties into the Withlacoochee River.

Silver Springs is one of the largest springs in the world, producing about 550 million gallons of water a day, forming the headwaters of the Silver River, which empties into the Ocklawaha River.
