, one of the world's premier drop zones, which attracts sky divers from around the globe. Zephyrhills is a semi-rural community known for cattle ranches and citrus farms but also for its distinctive downtown, unique special events and outdoor activities.

The Founders Day event has been recognized by the U.S. Library of Congress Local Legacies Project. The Historic Depot Museum
