Yesteryear Village Re-Opens At The Fairgrounds

Volunteer Steve Barnard loves to dance while "Fiddlin' Jim" Jim Waldeck fiddles.

Yesteryear Village, a 9-acre living history park at the South Florida Fairgrounds, has re-opened for visitors Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays in a limited capacity under COVID-19 guidelines. Last weekend, guests got to see demonstrations of woodturning and blacksmithing. Kids got to decorate cookies, while Misfit Island Rescue brought emus, ducks, chickens and turkeys. The General Store was open with old-fashioned items for sale. For more info., visit
