We’re getting ready


Even though we – and the rest of the country – are getting pummeled with new snow, we’re already starting to think about our spring and summer events.

In fact, planning is already underway for the 2014 Race the Joe! jet boat race, now an annual event, that will be held over Memorial Day weekend (May 23-25). Additionally the organizational committee is meeting to begin planning the annual St. Joe River Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K, which will be June 7 and 8 this year.

And it seems that the Paul Bunyan Days committee is working year-round. The event that has been the summer staple of our town for decades is loaded with tons of events that are surprisingly managed by just a few dedicated members of our community.

But since it is snowing – and if snow is more your thing – well, we’ve got you covered there too.

The St. Joe Snowriders is a local philanthropic group of thrill seekers, and its season is just getting started. Around late-January the annual Breast Cancer Benefit Ride is organized and run – so it appears this latest douse of snow has come at the perfect time.

Whatever your season, though, I think it’s pretty clear that there’s always something to do or see here.
