A Foot Stompin’, Toe Tappin’ Good Time!
It’s time for the fourth annual Our Santa Fe River Singer/Songwriter Contest, sponsored by Our Santa Fe River, Inc. and Rum 138. Come on out and listen to song performances about the river we all love on Sunday, October 6, 2013 from 4-6pm at OSFR Headquarters, Rum 138, 2070 SW CR 138 in Fort White!
Laid back Rum 138 (that cute new place that rents kayaks on County Road 138) will host the stage performances by artists who have written songs about the Santa Fe River. If you love the peace and tranquility of the river, there will be songs for you. If you love the sunshine, blue skies, and all the critters along the river, there will be songs for you. And if you love the stories of the characters along the river, there will be songs for you!
Musicians are already at work and will be performing original songs from 4:00 – 6:00 PM. Prizes for the winners will be announced as the contest ends. All songs will be recorded and filmed for YouTube (with the musician’s permission, of course). This event will be a fantastic time to celebrate the river life we all love.
Food and drinks will be available throughout the afternoon, so bring your favorite outdoor chair and sit a spell. The High Springs Lion’s Club will be serving barbecue all day for $8.00. There will be a silent auction, a 50/50 raffle and an annual membership drive. The highlight of the auction is a “Learn to Play Mandolin” package, including a brand new mandolin, case, and wall mount, a DVD, book, and extra strings. There will be an open mic music jam immediately after the contest. BYOC (bring your own chair!). Admission is FREE!

The Santa Fe River was designated one of Florida’s Outstanding Waterways. Come help us celebrate!
