To encourage people to settle there, the railroad engaged in a significant advertising campaign, exaggerating the quality of the soil and climate.FestivalsThe town is home to the annual Worm Grunting Festival, a town celebration named in honor of a worm grunting — also known as worm charming — a method for driving worms to the surface of the earth. Worm charmers hammer wooden stakes into the ground, then rub them with metal slabs. The resulting vibrations cause worms to surface, whereupon they are typically gathered and used or sold for fishing bait.Make your own Sopchoppy vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our United States attractions planner.
