Inside the small town of Zolfo Springs, FL from March 1st thru March 3rd 2018, a grand event occurs, the 50th annual Pioneer Park Days! Pioneer Park Days is one of the largest, and is the oldest antique tractor, steam engine and farm equipment shows in the southeast. Some of the highlights include over 200 exhibits of tractors, hit and miss steam engines and farm equipment.
In the flea market area there are 300 flea market booths that sell items from old tools to arts and crafts. Spaces are 20×20 for $75.00 for the length of the show. There are some great deals to be had.
All this family entertainment and taking a stroll down memory lane is a cost of $5.00 daily admission or $10.00 for the weekly pass.
Golf carts will be allowed during the show for a fee of $10.00 per day. Golf cart rentals are available at the Pioneer Park Days front office.
Artifact collections of the 1800’s + eras can be seen at the Cracker Trail Museum. It includes a wide range of pioneer household goods, farming implements, photographs, articles about Florida Cowboys & Indians, and additional historical documents.
Around the museum a Pioneer village was erected by generous donators to display a 1914 Baldwin Locomotive Engine #3 (also known as the Loping Gopher), C.A. Bryant Blacksmith Shop, and the Hart Cabin with pieces of furniture inside built by Mr. Hart, plus many more…
Each day at 2:00 p.m. the antique tractors host a tractor parade around the outside perimeter of the park.
