We are so excited about the upcoming long weekend! As usual, there is no shortage of events and things to do in Northeast Florida. Start off the fun with a Friday Afternoon Campfire Music Class at Sensory Towne where the littles will have the opportunity to engage in social and emotional development, as well as take part in sensory enhancements. On Saturday pack up the whole fam bam and head over to Creative Grain in San Marco to take advantage of their Family Friendly Open Studio where you have the opportunity to choose your project and then craft the day away together! Head on down to Atlantic Beach for the Beaches Local Backyard Marketplace at the new crowd favorite BBQ spot: ABBQ Meat & Drink. It will be an exciting afternoon with live music, free raffles, games, and a chance to connect with the community.
Let’s also take the time to remember the reason for our long weekend as we celebrate the life and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens will be hosting an amazing family-friendly experience featuring art engagement and special commemorations with free admission for all at their Martin Luther King, Jr. Day: A Celebration, Reflection, and Prayer for Peace event. Take part in the annual 2020 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Parade that will make its way through Downtown Jacksonville and culminate at the Prime F. Osborn III Convention Center. The parade will also include live entertainment, food, and giveaways along its route. The calendar is overflowing with things for y’all to do with your family! Just take a look right here!
