Tesla fans are invited to join Florida Tesla Enthusiasts at the Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park for an informal meet and greet at the historic Wakulla Springs Lodge.

This is a public event, you don’t have to be a club member to participate.

At 11:00 am a small dining room off of the main dining room in the Lodge has been reserved for our group.  The Lodge will be serving their famous:

WAKULLA SOUTHERN BBQ | $24 per person. Gratuity and tax not included. Served with freshly brewed ice tea and sweet tea.

Mustard-Dill Potato Salad, Coleslaw, Pasta Salad, Wakulla’s Famous Old South Fried Chicken and Pulled Pork with BBQ sauce, Brioche Sandwich Rolls, BBQ Baked Beans, and Braised Collard Greens, Cheddar Corn Bread with Jalapeño, Honey Southern Bourbon Pecan Pie with Whipped Cream.

There is also a snack bar in the gift shop across the lobby from the dining room.

Attendees will arrange to participate in the various ticketed park activities on their own and will leave the group meetup as their reservations require.

Guest rooms, the dining room and soda fountain are open at the Lodge.
