Our downtown events are well executed and attended by many community residents, businesses and non profit organizations. Examples include Saturdays in the Park with Artists and Authors, (beginning Nov. 7) the first Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the continuation of our popular Farmers Market every Friday morning from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., located under the oak trees on the corner of 14th Avenue and 21st Street. The community looks forward to our Downtown Friday events held 4-5 times annually, and of course the annual Hibiscus Festival which will be held on April 16 and 17, 2010. We have a number of exciting plans on the drawing board for 2010 including the re-establishment of the old Florida Theatre. We look to the people in the community to join us in our mission.”
