Organizers of the inaugural Spring Fling at Little Manatee River State Park chose the perfect date for blue skies, no rain, and a nice breeze last Saturday. The turnout was good for a first-year event, with 582 entering the park for the festivities.

There was a wide range of vendors and booths, though most were nature related.

There were enough activities for the kids to keep them busy the entire day. From face painting to horseback riding and canoeing, all ages found something of interest.
