Sparks of Past, Present, and Future

May 3, 2014 will mark 113 years since the Great Fire of 1901 when our fair city battled flames. So what are we going to do to commemorate how far our city has come? Celebrate of course!


Bay and Main Street after the Great Fire in 1901, and Bay and Main Street Bridge in 2014, JAX Chamber. 

In the spirit of One Spark we will salute our past, and welcome the future! To celebrate this and the Firefighters of Jacksonville we’ll be moving Community First Saturday to the Jacksonville Fire Museum on May 3rd from 10am to 4pm! Join us for fire trucks, food trucks, and live music!
