The Beef People
Everyone that has a connection to North Park knows the importance of beef in our economy and culture. There's an even larger scale connection some may remember if you were raised in the era of "The Beef People."
Winn Dixie grocery store chain was famous for this tag line through the 70's and into the 80's. They even toted large ribeye steaks on their billboards and proudly displayed the tag line on the front of their stores. Winn Dixie loved North Park and I can remember the buzz around the Park at a young age when filming crews were here to make commercials for "The Beef People" ads.
You may recognize a few of the faces in this commercial and I'm sure you'll recognize the scenery. Settings like this are still found here today, from the cowboy and horse to the beautiful mountain valley views filled with beef cattle.
