Yulee Diddley Day

Yulee Diddley Day in Archer honored David Levy Yulee, a U.S. senator who brought the railroad to Alachua County 150 years ago, and the late Bo Diddley, who was a Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame member. | | The Gainesville Sun | Gainesville, FL: "Despite the light rain, hundreds of people showed up in Archer on Saturday for Yulee Diddley Day, an event to pay homage to two of the town's most prominent names.

Celebrations took place all day, from the patriotic parade at 10 a.m. to the Bo Diddley Evening at the Depot-All Star Open Microphone that lasted until 10 p.m."
