These are not albinos, but siblings to the gray Eastern tree squirrel. This particular species
made its way to Brevard in 1949 as a result of a carnival wreck in central Florida.

Legion and VFW. This tribute to our slain veterans kicks-off the festival on Saturday morning
at 9 AM. The crowd-pleasing parade is followed by a "Presentation of the Wreath" at the county
courthouse War Memorial. Be sure to check out the 5K and 10K White Squirrel races sponsored by
