Pioneer Day Wrap-Up

2016pioneerdaycancelledSadly, this year’s Pioneer Day was cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew. Since then the Lafayette Activities Group has created a group page for the vendors who didn’t get a chance to offer their products at this year’s event called the Pioneer Day Market: If you were to be a vendor at this year’s event join the group and feature some of the great products you were going to offer. You might want to join the Lafayette Activities Facebook Group page to receive notifications of upcoming events in Lafayette County Florida area.

One of the featured businesses that posted in the Pioneer Day Market group page is the Sno Cone Shack
We are a local family owned and operated Sno Cone Shack that offers over 60 flavors, along with Sno Shakes, ice cold sodas and water and our newest addition to the menu Loaded Nachos. We are located in Mayo next to the High School. Open M-F from 2pm-7pm.

revisionmayoAnother Local Business that was to be attending the Pioneer Day as a vendor called ReVision. They have a Facebook page:
Almost all of our items are handmade and are made from 95% recycled materials. We reclaim lumber from barns and old houses and recycle it into new creations. The lumber from these barns and houses are from Florida’s early lumber heydays, so most of it is over 100 years old. Primarily we make birdhouses and potting benches, but we have made gardening totes and pallet signs. Each item is unique because we build with the materials we have collected not purchased. We feel that we are doing a small part to preserve our rich heritage as native Floridians and to educate others about it as well.

We would like to support all of our local business people so if you are the owner of a Mayo, Florida business please contact us with some information about your business and a picture or two that we could share with our readers.
