When this party started,
They era of logging and farming was just about done.
But many of the major canals and levees had not yet been dug.
The L-28 and Interceptor to the north didn't go in until the 60s and it wasn't until the late 1960s that the Miami-Dade Jetport was built which as a result led to the formation of Big Cypress National Preserve in 1974.
The 64th annual is next weekend (as shown on the sign).
