Postcards from Florida - Celebrate manatees in January

Published 1/5/2015
On Jan. 17 and 18, the 28th Annual Florida Manatee Festival (gomanateefest.com) will unfold in Crystal River, about 90 miles northwest of Orlando on the Gulf of Mexico. In addition to sea-cow spotting, the event also features music, an art show, crafts and food at the festival site at Citrus Avenue and U.S. Highway 19.

Closer to home, the 30th Annual Blue Spring Manatee Festival in Volusia County (themanateefestival.com) offers the same mix Jan. 24 and 25 at Valentine Park and Blue Spring State Park in Orange City.
