Lemon Dessert Baking Contest
Located in Pioneer Plaza, Dearborn Street, Englewood, Florida.
Why lemons? They played a role in Englewood since 1894 when the Nichols brothers purchased 2000 acres of property to develop a town with surrounding lemon groves. The land sold for $30 an acre. If you were interested in a 1-acre home lot, you had to also purchase a 10-acre grove lot. Unfortunately, 2 hard freezes in 2 consecutive years doomed the lemon crops.
To make the 2019 CRACKER FAIR a very special community event
we are looking for volunteers from all around town to join our committees.
