Ozello is one of the few places left in Florida that one can see up close, eagles,otters, manatees, dolphins, songbirds, and of course scallops! You will be visiting a part of Old Florida,traveling on a country road through the saw-grass and protected marshlands which abound with wildlife of all kinds!
There is an eclectic group of people who love to live there, and give back to their community in some measure. The Chili Fest is just one of those ways.
The Ozello Civic Association is a non-profit group of people who donate their time and a good portion of the proceeds, from the different events they hold,
to various local charities of their choosing. The charities are selected each year by member vote. The OCA also donates a Scholarship for some worthy student(s) to help them with their education.
