New Downtown event offers more Saturday entertainment options

Community First Saturdays, a new family-friendly Saturday event organized by the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce, made its debut in October on the Northbank Riverwalk.
Sponsored by Community First Credit Union, Community First Saturdays are designed to bring more people to the city center and other downtown venues during the weekend. The festivals are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the first Saturday of each month.
November’s gathering included tai chi, and cornhole games and ladder golf for the kids, an early voting patio party at Burrito Gallery, and the Downtown Housing Tour sponsored by ImpactJAX. Other events included a guided bike tour of historic San Marco, a spinning event to benefit Feeding America, the JAX Film Fest and the Alzheimer’s Walk for the Cure.
“With Downtown as a top priority at the JAX Chamber, this event is one way we are helping enhance and promote our urban core,” said JAX Chamber Director of Downtown Engagement Tony Allegretti. Allegretti was director of the Riverside Arts Market under the Fuller Warren Bridge prior to his new position.
