On October 1, 2004 the News Journal Online reported, "within the loose knit, and reportedly large and growing, pagan community of Volusia and Flagler counties, a wide variety of polytheists (believers in multiple gods and goddesses) and pantheists (those who see the divine in everything) happily coexist. Some, like [Gwen] Allen, who's the organizing force behind this Sunday's Pagans' Day Out festival at Hollyland Park in Holly Hill, practice an Earth-based religion that focuses on the symbolic and spiritual powers of invisible dragons. Others follow Wicca, Celtic, Norse, Egyptian, Druid, African and Native American traditions, to name a few."
