  • This film starts with a family frolicking in the surf at Naples Beach, then shows the Swamp Buggy Queen and her court. It then shifts to Caribbean Gardens, which features trained birds such as a duck that paddles a boat and plays a piano. Festivities start with a rifle shooting contest and parade including bands, beauty queens and a person dressed entirely in Spanish moss. The swamp buggy race gets underway on a course that is completely underwater. Women in a "powder puff" race wear shower caps. The men race and the winner dunks the Swamp Buggy Queen and takes her for a ride. The film ends with beach shots. Produced by Tel-Air Interests; sponsored by FDC.
