It’s time! One Spark 2015 is ready to roll out its 2015 Creator projects, rock the nightlife scene and reignite locals’ love of #DTJax. We can’t wait to see what the excitement unfolds.

While you’re out and about at the festival this week, we hope you’ll experience all Downtown offers, from its best-kept secrets (Ketchup? Pfft. Olio‘s garlic/basil aioli is how we dress our fries here) to fun ways to ride around town (Psst: the always-free Skyway runs late during One Spark).

Below, Downtown Vision, Inc. staffers share some of their favorite Downtown destinations and things to do during One Spark. For even more ideas on Downtown dining, nightlife and shopping, visit our Downtown directory. Happy One Spark, Jacksonville! Be sure to tag your photos with #DTJax so we can follow your One Spark adventures this week.
