    Past Is Present on Anna Maria Island

    In the month of March, Manatee Heritage Days celebrate the rich history in this area. All month long, historical sites and organizations celebrate the region’s heritage through a variety of interpretive means. Tampa Bay Newswire has a comprehensive list of events, but we've singled out some highlights:

    -        Anna Maria Island Heritage Day takes place at the Anna Maria Island Museum on Historic Pine Avenue on March 1st from 10am-4pm. You can witness settler crafts in action, including wool-spinning, bee-keeping and canning, and meet several local historical authors who will be on-hand signing books.

    -    ArtSlam will return to Old Main Street and various partner cultural sites from 10am-9pm on March 8th. Hundreds of artists, musicians, performers,  and other creative types who engage the audience and invite children to participate as they create multi-media art throughout the day and night.
