Florida Manatee Festival

By: Kevin Mims


I'm crazy about all things related to Florida manatees, so it's pretty obvious that I'd be excited about the upcoming Florida Manatee Festival in January.

If you feel the same, or are just looking for a cool event, then you need to head over to Crystal River and take part in the fun.

The fun happens in downtown Crystal River and celebrates the area's most famous resident, the endangered Florida manatee. Thousands of folks make their way to Crystal River for the event, which features food vendors, live music, boat tours and more. 

Visitors can tour Three Sisters Springs, where staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and provide information on the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge and everything related to the protection of Florida manatees.
