Today's Features

  • Cedar Key went to the dogs Thursday, Feb. 26, and everyone was just delighted about it because the pups were doing their community service raising money for the Canine Companions for Wounded Warriors, which provides trained service animals at no charge to recovering veterans.

    The pups, many dressed in creative costumes, brought their owners to City Park at 4 p.m. to line up for a parade. Some dogs, whose humans knew better, did not dress up their canine companions.

  • One of the big social events on the island during the winter months is the Cedar Key Woman's Club spaghetti dinner held annually at the Community Center. Folks turn out in droves for a down home meal of spaghetti, marinara sauce, salad, garlic toast and dessert provided by the island's finest bakers.

    But it is much more than a meal that brings them in the door, it's the social atmosphere as folks linger beyond the meal to catch up on what has been happening in the lives of the snowbird (winter) residents and locals' lives.
