Stephen has been one of our mods on RoamFlorida but, sadly as things change, he is stepping away because of a great opportunity. Stephen has been a great addition to the team. I have enjoyed his honesty and insight, and above all things his consistency. To me Stephen is one of those “old faithful’s”, and I love that! You are a rare find Stephen! You have added value to RoamFlorida. You will be missed around here! Good luck with the new promotion! Onward! Okeechobee, Florida. On 25 December 1837, Lake Okeechobee became the site of an important battle in the Second Seminole War, fought between a number of Seminole Native American groups, the United States government, and allied militias. The battlefield is now the site of a 145-acre park, and annual reenactments.
In 2016, Okeechobee became home to the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival. This multi-day, multi-genre music festival attracted approximately 30,000 people to the city in its first year. 📸: @ipp14
