Springtime Tallahassee Festival
Each year the Springtime Tallahassee Krewes spend many hours preparing their floats for the Grand Parade. Not only is time spent decorating floats, but each Krewe puts a lot of thought into incorporating the Krewe's time period into the theme of the current year.
Springtime is a civic organization dedicated to the promotion and preservation of Tallahassee history. The home and meeting place of the Springtime Board of Directors is the David S. Walker Library built in 1903. David S. Walker for whom the library is named was the founder of Tallahassee's first library and Governor of Florida from 1865-1868. The Walker library was a functioning library until 1976 and then was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Springtime members raised the funds necessary to restore the building. The library remains open for the public to see Monday through Friday.
