The Florida Department of State Continues Viva Florida
TALLAHASSEE – The Florida Department of State announces the continuation of the Viva Florida initiative, to promote cultural and historical experiences in Florida through to the end of 2015. This follows last year’s successful campaign of Viva Florida 500, the 500 year anniversary commemoration of Juan Ponce de León landing on Florida’s shores in 1513.
“Viva Florida 500 was the centerpiece in a series of important historical and cultural anniversaries in our state,” said Secretary of State Ken Detzner. “From Pensacola’s 450th anniversary in 2009 through to St. Augustine’s 450th anniversary in 2015, Viva Florida is an excellent way to promote Florida’s diverse cultural heritage and rich history.”
