This early spring celebration, drawing Its origin from the primitive festivals celebrating a bountiful harvest, Is a tribute to the annual harvest and the fertile areas of the Glades. BY CAROLE ANN FINKLEA The golden trail to sun and fun leads naturally toward sun-packed, fun-filled festivals and fairs In Palm Beach County and surrounding areas. This winter, tourists and residents will gather on the Gold Coast for week after Addres City Stat Zip Code . THE BEST of TWO WORLDS spiced it with a festival aura to provide a background for the multitudes of art work on display. From over the Fort Pierce way, sounds of gunshots and Indian war whoops will resound over normally quiet beaches when the Sandy Shoes Festival gets under way Jan. 17-26. The rough and romantic past of Fort Pierce and St. Lucie County comes alive during a western shoot-out and an authentic Indian pow-wow. Painted Indians and bearded frontiersmen bring a taste of the Old West to South Florida during the Jan. 25th Cattlemen's Day Parade. Other events planned Include a beard-growing contest, with prizes for the shaggiest and most distinguished "growths," Indian dances, sky diving exhibitions and an archery tournament. In western Palm Beach County, far from the festivals reminiscent of Spanish and Old West history, is the 16th annual Glades Spring Festi READER'S DIGEST ARTICLE "HOW TO RETIRE Oil '20 PER WEEK" (article published 1956 issued) IS NOW BEING ESTABLISHED AT THE FORT PIERCE HOTEL, FORT PIERCE, FLORIDA "DUE TO INCREASES IN OPERATION COST" Our rates now begin at $96.50 per month, including three meals daily and complete recreation facilities.

The baby of area celebrations Is the third annual Golden Palm Festival, Jan. 17-25, a potpourri of royalty and glamour. Tentatively scheduled for the festival period are a parade of festooned yachts on Lake Worth, Neptune's Reception, a bowling tournament, the exciting night-time parade and an International Fiesta. The king and queen of the festival, crowned in regal ceremonies before hundreds of their subjects, will be entertained by a court of royal celebrities. The Golden Palm Festival, the brain child of Palm Beach County Criminal Court Judge Russell H. Mcintosh, Is sponsored and financed by the Palm Beach County Golden Palm Festival Inc., formerly known as the S. S. Provldencia Inc. The original Provldencia was a 158-ton Spanish cargo ship carrying coconuts which ran aground in 1878, off what Is now Palm Beach. With visions of a productive coconut empire, the beach residents planted the coconuts, which grew Into towering palms, lending their names to the perennial winter resort. Perhaps the most Important role the festival plays, aside from brushing away all memories of winter's Ice and snow, Is the promotion of the South Florida Fair. The 1969 exposition, scheduled for Jan. 25-Feb. 2, will treat visitors to "The Golden Treasure of Pleasure." Last year the fair played host to 231,473 visitors, and more than 250,000 are expected In 1969, according to William C. Ochs, fair manager. Outstanding things to watch for this year include the art pavilion, where visitors will be able to vote for their favorite painting, the Japanese Trade Commission exhibit one of the 1968 fair's most popular displays and for the young and old alike the Battle of the Bands and the ever-popular midway attractions and concessions. Just follow the stream of cars to the fairgrounds, located on U.S. 98, one mile west of Florida's Turnpike, between the Lake Worth and the West Palm Beach Interchanges. .For the artistically Inclined, one of the largest outdoor art shows in the area is the Delray Affair, tentatively set for April, along the 12-block stretch of Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. For several days, more than 300 artists will display paintings, sculptures and crafts amid thousands of flowers. The Delray Affair Is the natural outgrowth of the old Produce Fair held for many years by district farmers.
