Fort Pierce Indian Day


The Fort Pierce community enjoyed a competitive, but relaxed Indian Day on Sept. 28. Music from a disc jockey played throughout the day in the background and an abundance of home-cooked food was available to satisfy appetites with breakfast, lunch and dinner. The recreation department offered plenty of activities as participants went from station to station at Chupco’s Landing ranch. Horseshoes, archery, log peeling and skillet tossing were among the main contests.

Giant inflatable water slides cooled off kids on the open field next to the community center
