Topics vary depending on the staff member leading the tour.

All members of your party must be present to receive a wristband. Check in at the Wiggins General Store at Manatee Village Historical Park on the morning of the tour to receive your free wrist band.
Please note that this is an outdoor event. Participants will traverse over curbs and uneven terrain. There will be no seating during the tour.
