One hundred years ago, long before Arch Creek was renamed North Miami, pioneer families gathered at the bridge for special occasions. Local families shared side dishes and desserts while the kids played along the creek's edge. Some of the folks who will come to today's feast are mature enough that their parents were among those to enjoy "Pop" Wiggins's slow-cooked specialties back then. "If he was throwing a party, only a fool would miss it," Robert Burr chuckles. Today will be a reenactment of that history, complete with actors dressed like Tequesta Indians, Seminoles, and soldiers. Expect a visit from Ponce de Leon and Henry Flagler, among others. Award-winning barbecue chef Mark Rogers of Smoke and Spice will provide the grilled meat. Long-time Florida residents will turn out in numbers to this celebration, but anyone who loves local history and grilled fare is welcome.
