Alligator Warrior Festival
Kicks Off Tomorrow and Runs Through Sunday

COLUMBIA COUNTY, FL – This weekend at O'Leno State Park, the annual Alligator Warrior Festival swings into action. There will be many activities, food, and opportunities for learning about Native American Culture in Florida. For those inclined to violence and war, there will be a battle reenactment on Saturday and Sunday.

Alligator Warrior Festival veteran, LJ "Two Spirits" Johnson told the Observer, "The festival is a place where children and adults can learn about Native Americans in Florida. It is important that the children have a chance to learn about our culture. They will see demonstrations of weaving, beadwork, ironwork and more."

Two Spirits continued, "I understand that everyone is not in favor of battle reenactments and want everyone to know that the Alligator Fest is much more."
