Metro Jacksonville is partnering with the Jacksonville Historical Society for a unique pop up event in Riverside on Saturday. Come grab lunch from Gourmet Aviator and prepare to be amazed as history comes to life about this little known historical event in Jacksonville.

What's In Store For Tommorrow

Join the Jacksonville Historical Society as we present a series of pop up events depicting historical events in our city that have gone largely untold.

On Saturday, July 21st, we will commemorate the anniversary of one of Jacksonville's most astonishing and little known historical events. Sponsored by the Jacksonville Historical Society, this celebration will itself be an amazing and slightly quirky event, since the historical subject and the exact location will not be announced until right before the event takes place. Using social media to spread the announcement, the event will 'pop up' just in time for hundreds of people to attend.

There will be a historical presentation and video program, a parade, a historical scavenger hunt, and a grand prize. This FREE and exciting event will start at 1:00pm and last until 2:30pm. Participants are encouraged to eat lunch at this event -- an old-fashioned lunch truck will be on-site serving hot meals and cold drinks for a small fee, and there will be BEER!

So bring your curiosity (and a metal detector, if you can borrow one), and pop some history with us. Sign up on our Facebook page to get plugged in and find out how to be part of this surprising and history-making event.
