Hooray for Halloweek!

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our first ever Halloweek! It was a spooky success!

Thank you to Live Oak Contracting for sponsoring our Jack O’Landing movie night!

Over 400 people were in attendance and stayed safe and happy in their socially distanced magic squares. Special thanks to Sun-Ray CinemaAVL Productions, the City of Jacksonville and Visit Jacksonville for making this event possible.
