Hernando Courthouse Christmas Tree Lighting

Brooksville FL Christmas Tree Lighting 2014

The Christmas tree lighting in front of the Hernando Courthouse in Historic downtown Brooksville was an even bigger event than last year. It was hosted by Randi Olsen and Jason Yungmann who performed along with the Live Oak Theatre Company, Suncoast Elementary School, and the Weeki Wachee High School Chorus. The street was closed in front of the courthouse, where vendors were selling food, jewelery, and crafts. Patricia's Dress Shop was open and young ladies were putting on a show in the window display which drew quite a crowd.

Canoeing the Chaz


“Chaz” is short for Chassahowitzka meaning “hanging pumpkins.” Along the banks of the river, hanging pumpkins once grew prolifically. The pumpkins are also called Seminole Pumpkins. They are a vine and are able to grow up trees so the pumpkins themselves appear to hang from tree branches. The pumpkins are quite delicious and easy to grow. Gardeners beware that they will quickly overtake the area in which they are planted.
