FCDC Depot Variety Show – This event draws large crowds each May when it is performed on stage at the Flora High School auditorium. Held at 7 p.m. on the Friday and Saturday nights of Mother’s Day weekend, people come from far and near to watch local talent perform a different show each year. Written, produced and directed by local talent, the show each year gives many area residents with acting, singing and dancing talent a chance to entertain. The event is sponsored by the Flora Community Development Corporation and all proceeds go to support renovation and operation of Flora’s historic B&O Railroad Depot. New and different material is presented each year, ranging from replaying old TV shows to original scripts written locally. Whatever the theme, the annual show offers plenty of humor, good music and the opportunity to see local citizens in an entirely different light, far different from their daily occupations.
