National Pet week was founded in 1981 by the American Veterinary Medical Association and Auxiliary, with the goals of promoting responsible pet ownership, celebrating the human-animal bond, and promoting public awareness of veterinary medicine.
From Abraham Lincoln’s funeral procession to celebrity memorials, Reflections: The American Funeral Tour was one of the most popular attractions at Ribfest. The museum features displays highlighting Native American burial traditions, presidential processions, veterans’ ceremonies, celebrity funerals and more.
“We knew a 1,000-square-foot funeral museum in the middle of Vinoy Park would draw a lot of attention,” said John McQueen, owner of Anderson-McQueen Family Tribute Centers. “Everyone who went through was surprised at how interesting it was, and some shared their own memories about the featured funerals.”
Ribfest broke all of the museum’s attendance records. Nearly 6,000 people went through the museum, took photos with Glory Ride and the horse-drawn hearse, and entered to win a weekend getaway at the TradeWinds Island Resort on St. Pete Beach.
