In early 2013, thousands of people piled into downtown Jacksonville in a way that has not been seen in many years. The SkyWay had more users on a daily basis for the space of one week than it sees in a month. Downtown restaurants and bars saw a huge burst in businesses and people were just spending extra time enjoying the downtown atmosphere. All of this was done while non-profits and members of hardworking small companies benefited from contributions and support.
This was One Spark, and it is coming back to downtown Jacksonville this coming spring. Except this year, the involvement will be larger, the expectations will be grander and the venues will be ready for all of the excitement—even more than they were last year.
One Spark is a great addition to Jacksonville’s culture, and it is helping people become a lot more aware of the different opportunities like property sales in Jacksonville’s downtown area.
Since last year’s One Spark, representatives of the charity-focused festival have been working around the clock to make sure that One Spark 2014 goes off in a grand fashion. They have opened invitations to community members from all different arenas, and have worked with officials of the downtown area to make sure that traffic systems and hotel accommodations are ready for the influx of people.
A lot of people are already excited about what One Spark will bring in 2014, and for good reason. This is a great opportunity to get out and meet your neighbors, while spending a bit of time getting involved with community initiatives that may just mean a lot to you and your family.
