Sesquiquadricentennial Celebration 1562-2012

Jacksonville will commemorate our Sesquiquadricentennial on May 1, 2012. As a part of the celebration, the French Navy is sending two tall sailing ships to Mayport and Jacksonville: the Etoile and the Belle Poule. They will depart Mayport Monday April 30th and sail up the St. Johns River to moor near the Landing around noon. The public is encouraged to welcome them in the traditional maritime fashion.
