BASINGER — The Heritage Festival at the Edna Pearce Lockett Estate in Fort Basinger will be held March 12-13.

Festival hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Admission is $10 per car.

This estate, a former homestead of the John Pearce family dates back to 1870 as a cattle ranch. It is now privately owned and will be open for this special event. The estate is located on U.S. 98 to County Road 721 (turn on Boondock Road  to enter the parking area).

This is an educational family friendly event. Headlining the event is the popular Christian musician, Tommy Brandt in concert plus local entertainment and craft and food vendors. The furnished historic home will be open for tours and the 1910 Fort Basinger School will house quilt exhibits and past newspaper articles about the estate.

Other attractions include a Cowboy Circus, Toby’s Clowns, a Cow Camp and the Florida Cracker Trail Riders and the 400-year Liberty Tree dedicated last year. SAR/DAR (Sons and Daughters of the American Revolution) from Highlands and Okeechobee will be present in period dress at the Liberty Tree site.

Visitors can take a guided ecological pontoon boat tour on the Kissimmee River on Saturday and learn about the 44-mile river restoration project and enjoy the wildlife. Cost is $20 per person. Tickets can be purchased at the dock.
