One can imagine the trees swaying and butterflies dancing to the music at the annual Florida Caverns Jazz in the Park.

The Friends of the Florida Caverns State Park will host the event, now in its fourth year, this Saturday, March 21.

“If people enter the park by 1:30 p.m., they’ll be at the Blue Hole Pavilion in time for the start of the concert,” Friends member Lois Jones said.

The Chipola College Jazz Ensemble, led by Daniel Powell, is now at more than 25 members and will be performing.“We have seen the group grow in he years they’ve come to the park,” Jones said.

She said the concert is the perfect setting for a relaxing picnic.“Bring your choice of food, a blanket, lawn chair or enjoy the picnic tables that the park provides near the pavilion,” Jones said. There is no cost to attend the concert. Admission to the park is $4 per vehicle.The Friends, a nonprofit group that works to encourage local citizens to visit the park, recently announced new membership opportunities. The cost to be a Friends member for one year is $15. As a Friend, members receive four free passes to enter the park.

A Friends Family membership is $20, providing eight passes for entrance into the park.“So you could become a member of the Friends of the Caverns, use one of the passes to get into the concert and have three left to visit the park some more,” Jones said.
