Florida is turning 500 in 2013! The Florida League of Cities is a partner with the State of Florida in a celebration titled “VIVA Florida 500.” Cities will be highlighted in this 18-month commemoration by the launch of the “History Happened Here” campaign. This campaign will educate Florida residents and visitors about the rich history in Florida’s cities.
A USB containing a “VIVA Florida 500 toolkit” was mailed to each city.
The toolkit includes a turnkey plan to help cities localize the initiative and use it to boost residents’ awareness of local history and promote history-related tourism.
