Schedule of Events

There is no planned agenda for this event. The festival will present an abundance of shooting opportunities best taken through going with the flow through the displays.

Sunset is at 5:26 so prime sky light lighting runs 5:00 PM through 6:30 PM.



Wide Angle primes to medium zooms are best served here. A light, could in some cases be helpful but not necessary.

Tripods will be a nuisance in the crowd but a monopod could be useful.


Other Tips

This is a rain or shine event (downpours excluded) so light rain gear might be worth carrying.


I95 or I295 to either Butler Blvd or Beach Blvd. to A1A. A1A is Third street in Jacksonville Beach. First Avenue N intersects with Third street (A1A) in Jacksonville Beach.
