Perspectives: Viva Florida

Between 2013 and 2015, Florida marks the 500th anniversary of its discovery by Spanish Explorer Ponce de Leon. That occasion will include a massive campaign to commemorate the state’s history and many local events connected with the “Viva Florida” observance. To provide the details are: Kerri Post with the Florida 

Department of State; Susannah Costello with Visit Florida; Margo Stringfield with the University of West Florida in Pensacola; Barbara Golden from the St. Johns County Visitors and Convention Bureau; and Andy McLeod with the Florida Humanities Council. Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner sets the tone for the discussion at the start of the program.
