Celebrate Bygone American Traditions at Cane Boil. Enrich your Thanksgiving holidays with merriment among the piney woods of Morningside Nature Center at the annual Cane Boil! The Cane Boil continues the age-old traditions of celebrating the fall harvest and live home-spun music. Be transported to bygone days by the rustic setting of Morningside’s Living History Farm. Hear the toe-tapping sounds of old time Americana music throughout the day, gather around the cane kettle and smell the sweet, sticky syrup as it boils. Enjoy demonstrations of historic skills, playing games and plein air drawing. Taste delicious southern food. Relax and learn during guided nature walks during the event.
The festival is presented, admission-free, by the City of Gainesville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department and the Friends of Nature Parks
