Speckled Perch Festival
Okeechobee Main Street welcomes guests and visitors to the 2015 Annual Speckled Perch Festival and Parade, scheduled for Saturday, March 14 and Sunday, March 15 in Flagler Park. The Speckled Perch Festival is the oldest celebration in Okeechobee, dating back to 1965. At that time the festival honored the fishing industry with a parade and fish fry in the park during the height of the tourist season and the tradition continues today. There will be local talent, food, arts and crafts and fun. Our Speckled Perch Parade on Saturday at 11:00 am sets the stage for the remainder of the weekend. There is a $10.00 parade permit fee for this parade. This festival has no admission; just fun!
